It's why they choose to dissolve imperial intelligence, why so many of their number are slaughtered throughout the story, it's why they generally just sit around plotting to kill each other.

Not that I disagree with the general content of your argument. I just wanted to point this out.
Well I agree with you on notion that Dark Council is made of power hungry egomaniacs but this is actually an argument AGAINST dissolution of Intelligence. The point is that dissolution would not personally or otherwise benefit them. On contrary, it would make them lose personal influence and power. The Intelligence was a Dark Council's tool, their instrument of fear and their eyes and ears. If they thought something isn't going the way they wanted they would replace the leadership and NOT destroy the whole thing.
