Though I've also read that Passive Aggressive is thought to be in the spectrum of Histrionic Personality Disorder, this comparison makes just as much sense to me. Granted, many personality disorders have quite a few overlapping symptoms (as so many physical diseases have), but I found this interesting all the same. Having had much more experience with PA than I'd like to have had, I know what it's like to live with a PA. And the AvPD symptoms are so close to PA behaviors, there very well could be a relation. (Though I've known PAs to lean more toward Histrionic types of behaviors, I've known just as many with typical AvPD behaviors.)
