Exactly.  

It's been stated that it doesn't make sense for
CYGSEM_HAL_ROM_MONITOR to be set for RAM startup because
RedBoot would be loading apps into the RAM where RedBoot itself
is running.  

ROMRAM RedBoot runs in the exact same memory locations as RAM
RedBoot, so why doesn't that reasoning apply to ROMRAM startup?
