In standard decision theory, "odds" (subjective probabilities) are
separated from utilities. Is "how much you care about the consequences
of your actions" isomorphic to "odds", or is there some subtlety I'm
missing here?

One thing unclear is whether you're advocating "moral relativism", or
whether you simply want an "escape clause" in your formal decision
theory so that if you don't like what your decision theory tells you
to do, you can alter your decision theory on the spot on a case-by-
case basis.
