Hmm, I thought somewhere between the initial spec development and actual production they backed off for cost and compatibility reasons. (Could be wrong, as it's been 10+ years). Either way, by the time AGA was released, the new chipset was rather standard.
Yes & no. If what I read in the amiga press was correct, there was a suggestion that the AGA or "AA" chipset as it was originally known was actually a cut down version of the AAA chipset design by David Haynie.

However due to cost cutting & a shaky CBM position, the final result was a cut-down AGA release. Would've been interesting to know what the planned machine from David Haynie would've had eg: 16bit sound,DSP or what. I suppose we'll never know now.
