Yes, that is actually an idea I've been about to ask regarding your 1541IDE 
project now when IEEE drives came into the question; how much the DOS logic 
differs between a 8050 and a 1541. Anyway, I'm sure there are lots of things 
one can do if you only had the time and motivation.

I edited the list a bit to better reflect what kind of stuff there is left 
to find. It might be an underestimate, but better to expect little and score 
a lot than the opposite.

By the way, this guy once built a portable PET. Well, more like "movable" 
because it consists of a 8032, a 8050 drive, possibly even a printer all 
built inside a huge box of Masonite, and wheels added to the box. Really 
huge piece, meant to be used in the field during artillery practises. I 
don't know what kind of data they would calculate or record during shooting 
practise, perhaps people would take breaks and play some games on the PET.

Best regards
