This is an editorial choice grounded in various factors...

To add a point C), from what we observe about differences in intelligence and consciousness IRL it's very clear that organisation is just as important, if not more, than processing mass. Elephants have brains ~3x larger than humans but are less intelligent. Various primates have brains nearly identical to humans but again, aren't as intelligent. Hell there are humans born that are very mentally disabled despite having brains that are just very, very slightly different.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
