I was the primary editor of PDF/UA-1, and (for my sins, which are many) I'm still the ISO Project Leader for PDF/UA-2, under development.

…and I'm very interested to know (offline is fine) what aspects of the specification didn't "make the cut" in your list!

To be clear… my interest is not at all coming from a critical place - it's simply that this information would be very useful to us as we fashion PDF/UA-2.
