Humm that's a very cool idea in my opinion...!
I'm no hardware expert so I guess I could be of very little help in
implementing an EEPROM on a 2600 cart, but I think that if someone wants to
try it, a good start could come from taking a look at the current Vectrex
implementation of the EEPROM solution... do you have any documents about it?
