1) You appear to believe that generating PDF 1.5 would
be an improvement; this is surely the very point
being debated, rather than an /a priori/ given.
2) This has nothing to do with my principles.
3) In my humble opinion, Manuel's assessment :

PDFs. If that only makes the documents inconvenient to read for others,
I think it's acceptable. It would be more annoying if the documents were
completely unreadable for some users.
seemed to go out of its way to be "fair" to all concerned.
