Actually, it just occurred to me that awareness of delays (step 5 of
the UDA) is where you and Schmidhuber part company. His speed-prior
discussion is all about assigning lower measure to computations that
take longer (eg have delays).

Going back to the ASSA vs RSSA divide, Schmidhuber's picture requires
the ASSA to work.
