There are fundamental differences between playing against humans and
computers. The lag is much slower for a computer.
Playing turn-by-turn makes for a superior game; the only drawback is
that you have to wait while the other player moves.

The current situation is completely fair: the AI moves in one phase, and
the humans in another. (The only exception is the double-moves bug.)

I agree that the AI should be able to be able to do non-movement actions
during human turns. But I don't think there's any reason the AI should
be able to move units.

A client-side AI would work just like a human player. Which is another
argument for supporting synchronous turns (in addition to the
asynchronous ones we have now).
