What would be the advantages of using 1.5? Note that PDF/A-1 is based on 1.4
indeed, 1.4 is OK for transparencies
PDF is advancing quikcly in Professional envoriments, latest Adobe products are 1.8 or 1.9 ?
I would even suggesting to use 1.7 Extension Level 8, it's the latest one
Reference to the version:
Read this great article :

Again, what are, in concrete terms, the advantages? And no, "because the numbers are bigger" doesn't cut it. ;)

Maybe it doesn't count, but it's good to have modern version.
Anyway, even if we would like use the new version, we would need to add/rewrite a lot of things.
See e.g. this http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/vcl/source/gdi/pdfwriter_impl2.cxx#n1333
Moreover, if we look on this file http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/vcl/source/gdi/pdfwriter_impl.cxx and search for "todo" we will see how much work it would be.(what i wrote above).
Can we mark this as WONTFIX with a whiteboard status of PATCHESWELCOME. This way we acknowledge it most likely won't be done but if a developer ever has free time (haha...?) they can take a look at this and see if they can come up with a patch?

Yeahhh well, of course. This was just an idea to improve LO.
Have no problems with it. Do so please.
Yeah and I definitely understand the appeal of using latest software but in this particular case it just seems like a ton of work for little (relative), real value. Thanks for the input
Looks like this was fixed after all.
