>> 3) submaximal exercise heart rates
>>following prolonged exercise are not useful for judging completeness of

That's why HR is not the only criteria used for judging recovery. It is not
clear what they mean by "submaximal". That could be 180, 140, 80 - all
these are submaximal, but if our horses don't recover to levels such as are
typically set for criteria, it can be one indicator (along with all the
others), that the horse is having difficulty. I certainly would be very
concerned if my horses HR was not recovering in a manner that was "normal"
for him. If the horse does reach the pulse criteria, but has poor gut
sounds and is deydrated, obviously these other variables override the pulse
as criteria. 
The vets and physiologists can elaborate more on this.
