Theoretically, it should be possible to display more than 192 or 200 lines
with graphics in PAL. The PAL Amiga, for instance, displays 256 lines in
each frame (reducing the number of blank lines).
Anyone ever thought of this?

Ah yes, only curious... are there any commercial games displaying more than
Atari's suggested 192 lines on one frame?
