Very possible.  I've been meaning to do some experiments on a real 2600 with 
some programs written to see what really happens.  I was thinking that I 
would try another one that initializes RAM to a known state and changes 
COLUBK every scanline depending on the value, and make sure I fill up the 
rest of the ROM with NOP.  Then fry and see what colors change, or if they 
all just change to black (zero).

Any other ideas for simple programs I can write that may reveal secrets 
about frying behavior?
