Anything is faster than PIO IDE (or SCSI).

But first versions of UAE<>Amiga-side communication in "OS4 mode" will make it more PIO-like, memory accesses are done by OS4 m68k emulator, it won't be DMA (UAE does direct writes to emulated memory). It probably still is much faster than PIO IDE.

DMA-like transfer support needs OS4 specific support code because of virtual memory and/or non-1:1 physical/logical mapping. Much much later..

Yes. It will allow working OS4<>UAEGFX communication but it does not guarantee anything else.
