Note that the AI can consult the human during the bootstrapping process.

Being able to consult a human who has limited time to think and respond seems much inferior to being able to spawn multiple copies of a human who can each think for a long period of time. So I don’t see why a human clearing the bootstrapping threshold would imply that an AI who can only consult a human can clear the threshold.
