   | Change of '-ax' to '-A' is reported on the NetBSD /bin/ps man page as equivalent
 Yes, -ax and -A are the same and that can be changed.
   | Change of '-o pid,command' to '-o pid,comm' is supported by NetBSD /bin/ps
   | (although it is undocumented) and conforms to POSIX and X/OPEN standards.
 It is documented (at least as far back as NetBSD 6) but does not mean the
 same thing, NetBSD's "comm" is the same as the POSIX "comm", whereas
 NetBSD's "command" is the same as POSIX "args" (which is also supported
 on NetBSD as an alias for "command") so if  you can verify that changing it
 from "pid,command" to "pid,args" works for you (with the heirloom version of
 ps in use) I cannot see any reason we should not make that change.
 I doubt that a pullup to -6 or -7 is warranted though (and perhaps not even -8)
