I don't think so.  As far as I know, reading/writing at $0280 is the the
same as $0288.  Could it be to help stop reverse engineering?  Or maybe they
are reusing code?  Like they already needed the $88 byte for data or whatever
and they were reusing it in the code?  I think some people here have done
similar things of excuting data as code.
