Actually many of these champions I do not play personally and the guides are results of research done through several of the guides from Solomid.net and Leaguecraft.com.
For example the option of maxing Judgement first on Garen and getting the Rod of Ages on Annie are examples of research from the many guides on both characters.
For amumu the aegis is put in (brackets) because it is an item for the situation. Aegis is good when it is rushed for an early fight or push, otherwise you can leave it out.
Most of the champions from the A - C section are rather old because they were drafted out a few patches ago.
Cho'gath can farm waves with Vorpal + Scream, but he uses less mana this way so he is more sustainable. If he spammed Rupture + Scream on every wave he would be easier to harass and have to go back more too.
On Cassiopeia, I actually play her and it's important to get the levels of Noxious Blast because without the movement speed increase you won't be able to get enough Twin Fangs off to make it worthwhile.
