     Hard rewording, but yes.

     Ie., current EMM386 doesn't check that such maping is wrong and, thus,
we get hanging machine (because all subsequent "screen outputs" will
overwrite code, which will loaded there)?

     I mean this not as part of "great trick usage", I try to understand,
what happen, if generic config.sys with I=B000 will be used on mono machine
or config with I=B800 will be moved to machine with plain color adapter.
