They're old issues, suggesting that part of the problem is circular.
People won't use broken code that doesn't evolve, thus no-one is using
PAIR, thus we see no use cases for it...

Afaics all these issues can be solved by documenting (and maybe
enforcing) that PAIR should only be used for inproc work, which
at least matches documented experience of its usefulness.
