--- Comment #15 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
rsync's -a specifically does not include -A or -X because these are not
supported by all versions of rsync, or on all platforms, or on all filesystems,
and they can be disabled at compile time.  If you specify -A or -X and either
end doesn't support them you get an error.

-H is also not included in -a but I personally would be happy if it were.

Again, from the man page:
    -a, --archive               archive mode; equals -rlptgoD (no -H,-A,-X)
