If the speed of light continues to be the limit of information propagation,
even for an SI, one can make a reasonable argument that there is a finite
size bound beyond which there is no practical utility to further expansion,
or even "seeding the universe". I would expect the bound to be quite small,
on the order of a star system or smaller. Under such conditions,
cohabitation of multiple independent SIs in the universe is possible.
That said, there would be a lot of value in accreting as much matter as
possible within that finite volume.
