Assembly files are loaded anywhere into memory where it start address
says. In fact all files in the PET always load to their designated
start address as given in the file on disk. 
Only that BASIC code has this special start address
$0401. So PETs always load as a C64 would with ",8,1".

I guess Commodore changed that default behaviour (",8" loads to default
BASIC start address) when the newer machines (VIC20, C64), got a 
different memory map.
