Yes, I missed that. Thanks.

Ok. So I added an additional option. -Fbin -oric-mcx now writes an Oric header with auto-exec flag (80 c7), while -Fbin -oric-mc writes one without (80 00).

Hi Graeme, you wrote that you already use a data section, which you access with base-relative addressing modes via A6, pointing to the middle (probably a 32K offset) of that section.
