On a more positive sidenote, I managed to make the game save a location of my choice to the 1f bank, and it affected nothing adversly, so it should be possible to recreate the variables there, with some work.
Amazing! Still, Game Freak needed to do better with the coding of the routine in the first place, even if they weren't planning on using those variables.

BTW, what would you suggest for a hack of Emerald that's used variables up to around, say, 0x5030? Would you recommend switching them all out (somehow), or will we see a fix in the near future?
