One of the Halo 3 terminals has a familiar AI?

I'm still looking for all the information found in the Halo 3 terminals, but this is one I found on a Halo-related forum... and I think it might actually reference Durandal.

...

// FRAGMENT 7/7 [RECORDED VERBATIM
AND INTERPERETED POST CATACLYSM]

D: Proud? When I have failed you
utterly, how can I feel anything
but sorrow?

Bias has come undone. He crossed
the line this morning - brought the
abomination with him - and destroyed
your waiting rescue party.

It's over. We're activating the
[destructive arrayed matrix],
our shameful last resort.

I can picture you in your garden,
surveying all you have created -
surveying all you have preserved.
And I curse the circumstance that
keeps my finger on the trigger.

D: Of all the fates to befall us,
this is the cruelest of all.
My inaction and hesitation and
foolishness kept me here, on the
wrong side of the line. And [300
years [?]]
of our society's failure
and miscalculation makes me your
executioner.

It's too much to bear

// ERROR - NO CARRIER OR RECEIPT
AVAILABLE {DEAD END TRANSMISSION}
// INFORMATION DESTROYED IN TRANSIT

D: Mendicant Bias is trying to
prevent us from firing the Array.
He speeds back to the Ark, but he
won't succeed. Offensive Bias will
stop him, and I will burn this
stinking menace in your name.

And then?

I will begin our Great Journey
without you, carrying this bitter
record. Those who come after will
know what we bought with this [false
transcendence]
- what you bought,
and the price you paid.

Interestingly, 'Mendicant' means begging or relying on charity to survive. So there's an AI named basically "Charity Bias", and "Offensive Bias"...
