00000000 does not have to be ROM.  You just have to be able to load 8
bytes from it at reset time.   I've seen boards by Pro-Active Control
which use a counter to change the memory mapping after the right
number of bus cycles to that the vectors can be in RAM (except,
effectively, the reset vector).
