Others have told about the form already so no more comments on that.  
Just few words that something like that would be quite useful for  
various machines. Although I do have my favourite ZP locations on the  
64, I (f.e.) had to spend a good amount of time searching for safe ZP  
locations when I started something more serious on the 1541. When I  
jump to do some porting to PET - I will surely like to have a reliable  
info resource like that - with explanations as you mentioned.

Short answer: yes!
