Yes but you don't know if it actually work in identical real hardware configuration. Only 1991+ demos are mostly safe to use.

From my personal experience sooner or later I get report like "This demo worked with config [too new hardware config] but does not anymore work with UAE version x.y". Usual reply is: It wasn't even supposed to work, it does not work in real hardware if using same config!

(The higher end and faster the config, the less compatibility with real world hardware)

Here I did not understand what you've written,mine but it was just a simple example, You can also use a hardfile and put in all the demos and then run them from a shell, what's so strange, I have created many compilations on hardfile with booting function keys.
Point was: How does it fix demos that only work with chip ram only system? Copying it to floppy or HD won't magically make your fast ram expanded system chip only.
