Yes, they aren't
Define ROM = READ ONLY MEMORY.
A kickdisk from the A1000 is doubtlessly software
, this means it can be altered by a hacker and is, by design, NOT (!) "read-only"!
There IS a ROM in the A1000 anyway, though: it's that 8K bootstrap ROM
; the one which makes all your Kickdisks work at all!
