In short it's an attempt to make PDF "universally accessible"; "PDF/UA"
means "PDF/Universal Accessibility".

PDF/UA should enable e.g. screen readers to access information within the
PDF file better.

For this it's essential to structure PDF content, including tags to markup
the contents. Another thing is special markup of hyphenation information for
enabling text reflow and clean screen reading ... But that's a different story.
