Your pedantism does you credit :) Thanks for the correction, Sergei.
Of course Slavic *-at- may reflect either *-a:t- or *-o:t-. Looks as
if -a:-stems had originally formed adjectives in -a:t-as
("barzduotas" should read <barzdotas>), and -o-stems in *-o:t-as.
This makes a lot of sense, cf. Latin cornu : cornu:tus and Lithuanian
akis 'eye' : akytas 'having eyes'. *-H-to-?
