Could be, you are right. But PDF/A would created and standardised to 
long time archive! (To make it more complicated, it exist more than 
one version of PDF/A.)

I think, it would be enough to using a popular format like PDF/A 
because it will exist some programs to change to the next format in 
the future.

The next problem is to create a *correct* PDF/A. To make sure this, 
it exist some programs and online checker. It seems to be needed :-(

And a last question: I mean, it is enough to made one bit per pixel 
("lineart") for letters, but it exist examples for color scan in 
such cases - I don't know why:
