As passionate as you are about it, you probably already figure that out by now.

Doesn't answer my question. This behavior is not limited to the HP-IL ROM. No matter what, ROM/IRAM configuration always starts on a 32k boundary.

This behavior is not limited to the HP-IL ROM: agreed.

Phase one of the distribution process;
RAM from bottom address 30000 to XX000
Phase two; ROM/IRAM 32k or more starting from the top addresses to bottom.
Phase Three; First 16k or less ROM/IRAM Starting (bottom to top) after the RAM but can be mixed with RAM in the same 32k boundary, so it takes the first available 16k boundary after that, which mathematically always will be at Y0000. If different than F0000, Y8000 is free for next 16k (or less) because phase two are 32k multiples.
