As you can also alter the caches in ISOCD when creating disk. If I recall there are two. Altering either lower effects the cache and saves memory.
I have played around with reducing them to gain more memory for stuff that wouldn't load correctly due to caches taking up mem.

If you get the disc layout nice and tidy, then reducing caches doesn't hurt.
Yes, within the loader.
70k is the minimum requirement of memory to load a sector from the CD. The caches in ISOCD is used by the CD filesystem.
The rn cd32 loader doesn't use any OS functions and doesn't allocated more memory for caching file/dir/... it's just a hardcoded trackdisk loader.
