First, you can detect a 128 by it's additional hardware and therefore can
sort out the 8502. You can also distinguish between 6510 and 8500 if the
computer is without any damage by testing for $de00 compatibility (running
programs in I/O or colorram space), because this works only on the 8500. So
if it works, you have a 8500. If it doesn't, you can have a bad system or a
6510 CPU. 

But I don't know how to distinguish between 6569 and 8565 from a program.
No problem if you look at the video output, but there's no feedback for
that ;-)
