You have to add some solderpads (or whatever suits you) to make the pins available to the user. (I assume that the CPLD has enough free pins)
The CPLD has extra pins, and they are bonded out to pads on the PCB.

That said, I don't think there are enough inputs to the PLA to decode 
those areas.  So, you'd need to add inputs in addition to outputs.

The unit has 7 additional I/O lines, and I am happy to put any equations 
desired on there.  Just let me know what  would be desired.
