I think it would be a hoot if an Abominable Intelligence ended up achieving the terrifying goal of far outstripping it's creator's intelligence, only to use that power to improve humans in ways the humans found entirely agreeable and sensible. Then the Imperium would have to destroy it on principle, being otherly and an Abominable Intelligence!
