If we're talking about 765-type controllers, one would need more than
that--a 765 will not start reading or writing until an IDAM has been read
and checked, and in the case of a read, the DAM seen. Both of which are
provided not by writing, but by formatting. So one would need some extra
logic to generate said info to keep both sides happy.
One instance where a "smart" (sic) floppy controller gets in the way.
