I had a quick view on the data sheet of that chip and it looks like it
only has 240 usable (from 256) bytes of data buffer. Not enough to hold
a disk sector. This will make the CoCo slow for other tasks than USB
access. AFAIR people started to build "No Halt" controllers with sector
buffered Disk I/O 20 years ago for that reason.
