For example

PUFA - omega3:Omega6 also Omega3 plant:animal

electrolytes - potassium:sodium

What other ratios do you know about that you think are important to consider or implement for paleo?

I think it's probably unhealthy to think too much about any of these ratios.

How about the Fat/Carb/Protein ratio?

I agree with those two, and would add that there are plenty more that haven't been studied well enough. Calcium magnesium balance is important as magnesium tends to keep calcium soft and flexible in the soft tissues. Also having a good balance of zinc to copper is important for mental health as they are antagonistic to each other and a lack/unavailability of either can cause problems.
