Yes, but that requires more diodes than is strictly necessary.

But along those lines..

I was trying to work out how to do an XA1541 type interface
using 74HC

I suspect that, since it's going to be connected to the serial
bus, all that would be necessary would be would be to put a
capacitor across the power pins and let it charge through the
protection network. :)

God knows how well it would behave though.
