You're muddling things. Software != "computer programs".
I'm guessing many of the laws and treaties you refer to make a
distinction between "computer programs" and other copyrighted things.
How many of them refer specifically to "software", which is a broader
category than "computer programs"?
We can admit that there is a distinction between "computer programs" and
"documentation", while still insisting that documentation on a disk or
in memory is "software".
