The Technical Manual is, but not the User Manual (which may not exist, the TM
doesn't mention one); the TM doesn't cover the software (in the PROMs), just

Ah, didn't know that - thanks, that's useful.
It's been a while since I looked at the BDV11 entry there; I was using the
BDV11 entry in the Microcomputer Products Handbook.
