So, do you have a theory about where this came from? (There is absolutely zero
snark here, this is a serious question. It's quite a puzzle, and an
interesting one.)

Maybe a collaboration between two people, one at Apple, one at the PCB house?
'Make two extra boards, and I'll trade you the PROMs for one of them.' Can't
do it with just a person at the PCB house - as you point out, need the ROMs.
But you'd think that if someone at Apple just pulled a board, that would be
noticed (board count wrong).
