An invalid value for the size nib, 6 or less, would be rejected during enumeration. Although I do some sanity checks while processing the table, these 8-bit controllers lack the RPM (Read Programmers Mind) instruction, so I ultimately have to rely on proper care being taken when setting up the table. OTOH, part of the fun might be seeing what happens if you enumerate the same ROM multiple times - backup first

So, could these be reasonable default place holder values:
Code:
; SIZE , RESV , TYPE , CLAS , LAST , FLAG , ADDR , CHIP   0x0A , 0x00 , 0x01 , 0x00 , 0x08 , 0x01 , 0x00 , 0x05

or this ?
Code:
; SIZE , RESV , TYPE , CLAS , LAST , FLAG , ADDR , CHIP   0x0A , 0x00 , 0x01 , 0x00 , 0x00 , 0x00 , 0x00 , 0x00
