Excellent review. One thread to pull on: active inference is in a sense an extension to Pearl causal inference that is more practically applicable to complex systems, as the agent's probing of (internal and external) environment and comparing with its assumed generative model is included explicitly as part of the theory. Some (myself included) are even working on higher-order model testing and learning in active inference, using exactly the concept of abstract frames a la Hawkins.
