Erm... you do need bus arbitration. You can plug a CPU into the A500 sidecar socket. This is exactly what I am talking about. You effectively have a zorro slot on the A500 that can become a bus master by itself. You also need bus arb if you want this to work on any Atari hardware because they all use the bus arb for DMA cycles.
