Isn't that dangerous if you've been using a disk right before and (by 
accident) type in some disk commands? Two things could happen:
1) the FAT or DIR structure is destroyed by writing back some garbage 
(not shure about that)
2) your BASIC programm in memory will be destroyed (more likely) by the 
disk buffers overwriting memory at &H600

However, I remember there was a way to do some kind of "soft" coldstart 
in just Extended Basic even with the disk contoller installed by a 
sequence of POKE and EXEC.
