So given that the issue with "lost" A flags is still existent,... even
though it happens far less frequently (I vaguely remember some changelog
entry in aptitue with respect to this)... and that you have now
re-dedicated that bug to the documentation part only,... I guess the
other part of it is now fully tracked in #508428 and #537735
