I'm not stopping anybody from re-examining the various acts.

And your statement of the reason behind the DB act is only an opinion. Further, even if an act was created with questionable intentions, it may sometimes be kept or used for other purposes beyond the original. Thus, original intent alone is not a reason to keep or discard an act.

Robot treatment shouldn't be our baseline for human treatment. If it's pretty obvious that robots will get incrementally better, then it is as somebody else described it: competing directly with robots (and 3rd world labor) will become a "race to the bottom". That's competing with automation, not leveraging it to make our life better.

Long computations which yield zero are probably all for naught.
