In your shoes, I'd pick Cash+ categories that were a bit unusual but occasionally useful - like electronics or sporting goods stores. Use the CSP for dining and travel.
Apart from your chosen bonus categories, I'd only make the occasional small purchase with the Cash+ to keep it active.
There are no-AF Amex cards you might consider. What about BCE? Or do you want to keep your number of cards and issuers to a minimum?
Maybe get a Discover or MC? If you travel a lot, you might find some places that take MC but not Visa. I really like having a card from each major network.
As far as AAoA, having even just one account (presumably with a clean history) with Chase from 2009 will help you when you talk to a human if you ever have to recon a credit decision.
Keeping indefinitely: IHG, SchwabPlat, CSP, Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE, Hyatt
May close or PC: Prestige, Arrival, BrooksBros
AA Platinum converting into Costco
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
Letting new accounts cool off since May
