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! Regards.
