I could be wrong in my memory. But I also had an impression that she had planned another combo that she ended up letting go there?She did Double Axels after other jumps which, while not a "combination" in terms of the actual definition, is worth more than just adding 2t to a jump.
Your assessment of Akiko is unfair. She skated very well at her Nationals last year and should have gone to Worlds. She is a better jumper than most of the field and her presentation has improved quite a bit. Akiko is blossoming into a GREAT skater.
I expect no less than 2nd place at Skate Canada from her.
