It would be awesome if they did have both, as I still use composite a lot myself for hotels and SD video capture and stuff like that. I'm not counting on it, but maybe Charbax can give it a try and see if there are any surprises?
Unfortunately HDMI Down converter to Composite isn't as popular as Composite upconverter to HDMI... but you can find them just Not cheap... i.e.;

Yes, not cheap at all. I've priced them and they're all in the $150-200 range. And I can't find a DVD recorder or anything like that which would serve as a pass-through. So I'm not going to consider that a good option (but thank you for suggesting it.) At those prices, I could just get myself an Archos 32 and have TWO Android devices
It would be awesome if the A70 and A101 had composite video-out built into the audio port like the A32 and A43 though. But like I said, unless Charbax finds a surprise in his review copy, there looks to only be HDMI.
Composite is anolog signal and HDMI digital. Inorder to support both the device would need to have two graphics chips or at least two ports.
There is no reason to think it would be worth it. Also the anolog signal may not support all the resolutions the bigger tables are using.
