Publisher did not pass the test

Why do you find it alarming that other forum members don’t regard APub as being in the same league as older, more mature, software? (The ‘Advanced Member’ label is merely a reflection of the user’s post count.)

I don't know a great deal about the finer details and standards associated with PDFs but I do use the PDF format to submit my final drafts of my novels for print-on-demand.  Companies like IngramSpark are strict about conforming precisely to the PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002. If there is any possibility that there may be problems with Apub, as suggested by Lagarto, then I am simply not going to spend the considerable time it takes to format a novel using it. Hence my alarm. I would always expect that whatever vintage a software is, it, at the very least, does not produces an output that could cause problems or a reduction in quality as Largarto suggests. The doubt is in my mind at present so I won't be using APub.

Because Serif has not yet implemented pdf passthrough at this time. This capability will come in a future version.

In context with Affinity photo an editable PDF import makes no much sense imho. When I import a PDF to Affinity Photo I only want to »convert« it to an image format.

Thanks for reading.
