Unfortunately, VeraPDF cannot handle my production document and crashes during validation :( (see attached `production-result.xml`).  Also, it seems that leaving out `intent` does not make any difference.

It's supported (along PDF/A-3a), but untested and undocumented. It was
just a prerequirement when adding PDF/UA-1. I couldn't find a validator
for it (only own Acrobat Pro 9) that time.

Meanwhile I stumpled over

https://www.pdf-tools.com/pdf/validate-pdfa-online.aspx

but haven't found the time (and mood!) to test it.
