With the variety of high-end APS-C cameras on the market with changeable lenses, I don't understand the purpose of this "A" camera.

Good question. I dislike interchangeable-lens cameras. They are necessarily much larger, they make noise that the 'A' doesn't, they have vibrations from the shutter mechanisms (Panasonic m4/3 are really bad for that), they have exposed sensors when changing lenses, carrying extra lenses makes them no longer a 'camera' but a luggable "camera system", etc. etc. I could name a few more....
