Any reasons, why the TIA constants start at offset $40?

AFAIK in all disassembled old games the registers start at $00.

Or is it just to make disassembling with DiStella a bit more compliated?

Well, except for the useful SLEEP macro (which probably should be renamed into
WAIT or DELAY) and some very minor stuff (e.g. illegal opcodes) I don't have 
useful general macros. 

Mainly only because the current macro support is too limited.

Anyway, I'll post Andrew the latest versions (with some additional comments ;-) of 
all my macros and he can decide wether to use them or not.
