A couple of questions:

(1) Has anyone here used it and does it make writing macros for Base

I looked at the examples a few weeks ago, and it seemed to me as a
clearer approach to database programming as the UNO-way.

IMHO it is not only useful for migrations from Access, but for more
serious db-projects. I do not know anything about MS-Access-Programming,
I did some old-style DBase/FoxPro-Development some years ago and I
didn't  feel well with this UNO-thing up to now.
Obviosly it is a great API, but that huge that it becomes a labyrinth to

I agree, it looks much cleaner. Every time I try to work with UNO, I think what an overly complex way to accomplish what is sometimes a fairly simple task. The only thing wrong with Acess2Base is that I do all my work with Calc. That's why I was wondering if there was going to be a Excel2Calc version.

After Access2Base was incorporated in LO from 4.2 on, it is a promise to
improve things and it might become real, if it would be featured as the
standard way of programming LO Base and if gets broader acceptance.

At this time I can't estimate, wether I can rely on this tool for long-
term projects.
And there is yet a lack of documentation, tutorials for end-users.

Fortunately there are more discussions about Base in general in the last
months here.
I wonder why this topic came up so "late"...

I would guess that, probably because of UNO, not that many people are writing macros.
