Now, could that work, or would that 
display rubbish every other line?

I fear it won't work :-)

VDEL must be the most useless thing ever put inside a chip... :-)

It won't work. The random data would eventually get copied
into the GRP registers that are used for display, so it would
show up in every other scanline.

And VDEL is quite useful, if you want to do simple games
like Combat, which is what the VCS was designed for. Also
it enables us to do the six digit score routine, which is
one of the most useful things for just about any VCS game. ;-)
