Whats the best way to allocate bitplane memory?

To allocate memory for a bitmap I always used to do the following

Code:
section code,code_c
    lea bitplane,a0
    etc
    etc
    rts

section plane,data_c
bitplane: 
    ds.b (320*256)/8
Which seems to work ok. But the problem with that method is increased file size and loading times when testing.

So I have switched to using the allocmem library which solves this.

But now Im wondering is there a "section" I can put in assembler that would allocate the memory when the program loads automatically? This would be ideal as it saves me handling of memory allocation.
