28mm deforms a lot. If the GR or the A had a 35mm I'd trip over myself in the rush to buy it. Considering the spanking the GR gave the A, if Nikon changed it to 35mm they'd open a new world for the Coolpix.

Assuming that "deforms" refers to distortion, yes, there is a bit of that, but when used properly, can be minimized.  I am not so sure the Ricoh GR spanks the A; they are, actually quite close, and I prefer the handling qualities of the A, plus, the A plays well with Nikon Speedlights and some peripheral accessories. If the A did not exist, I would probably not be interested in the Ricoh GR.

I do agree that an A with an angle of view equivalent to 35mm would capture my attention; 40mm to 45mm even more so.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action. During personal time, I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.
