Wouldn't a 64K byte parameter list run into problems with programs such as 
HLASM, compilers, and other programs which allow an optional DD name list to be 
passed as a second parameter when invoked from a program? As I recall, they 
detect whether the DD name list is passed by testing the high bit - the "sign" 
bit - of the first parameter.
