If I can think of a way to do this without crippling overhead, I'll probably
do it.
I am very concerned about ruining the "specialness" of "real" VCS games by
making the VCS itself more accessible, while at the same time I think it
be beneficial to make the VCS more accessible to get more people interested
in it.

It's a good idea.  I'm sure by the time I get it to compile I'll have
thought of
a suitably low-impact way to mark BAStella games.  (Of course, the first
machine language hack any BAStella user will do is removing the notice...)
