Since the 6522 was made by multiple vendors (Rockwell, MOS, Synertek, UMC...),
I would think that it's a "safer" chip to use.  The 6526, while millions
were made, was strictly a Commodore/MOS product, right?

While I'm on the subject of 40-pin 6502-family ICs, while fixing up amn AIM-65
this weekend and going through my bins of parts, I ran across both 6522 chips
and 6522A chips.  Are there any substantial differences?  Current drive on
the output ports?  Anything?
