The only thing on that list that was even arguably at issue in this accident was the cabin attitude, and I'm not sure evacuating a plane on the side of a hill in the dark is wise.
I don't know all of the facts. I don't know that there was no sort of fumes in the cabin, I don't know that ceiling panels and/or over head bins hadn't opened or fallen, I don't know any of the conditions that were experienced therefor I am not going to speculate but it is not correct to state that they MUST get feedback from the flight-deck. It is ideal, but not always possible.
I doubt any crew member from inside that cabin knew they were on any type of hill. Being inside the cabin, in the dark is very disorienting. It's easy for you and I, form the outside, after the fact to make statements about what should or shouldn't have happened.
