Trajan Sans

Reding this blog entry about Robert Slimbach's 25 years at Adobe, I stumbled into a reference to Trajan Sans, his most recent design, included in Font Folio 11.1:

The only other online reference I've found is a page in the Adobe Type Library Book:

I'm surprised I didn't notice this before, since a sans derived from the Roman inscriptional capitals is a very interesting feature, and a research that interested some very gifted talents, from Hermann Zapf to Sumner Stone. I wonder if anybody alse has got any other info about Slimbach's late typeface.

My first thought is that there are similarities to Optima et all.
