Exactly. I don't know by what means you'll transfer the images to the
computer, but if they are transferred through storage on a 5.25" disk
or similar, you're already forced to have a load address.

I believe all modern emulators use load addresses, and all the Funet
images (before they were put away due to the recommendations from IDSA)
should have those attached as well. I don't know if EEPROM burners like
or dislike load addresses though, but it's the only scenario I can come
up with where one might work with the raw 8192 bytes images.
