Suggest a new Test Cartridge with a new revision number. Maybe rev. 5. Maybe some other revision or name.
Updated to perform one or more of the following addition functions / tests: 
• Notification to connect Controller or Termination Plug on Controller Port 2 during controller analog centering check. 
• Notification to connect Controller on Controller Port 2 during button operation check. 
• Full Memory Test.
• Method(s) to check and test bank switching operation.
• Definition table for Checksum version information for know checksums.
• Method to check and display Mine Storm version.
• Method to check and display CPU installed. Just for fun.
• CPU Stress Test.
• RAM Stress Test.
• Other bus connected component Stress Test.
• Light Pen test
• 3D Imager test
• Audio test to specifically demonstrate the Vectrex Buzz, and lack of it.
• VecVoice test
• VecVox test
• Vectrex Link Cable test(s) via Controller Port 2 (Two Vectrex required.)
• Spinner Controller test
• Trak-Ball Controller test
...other future accessory test.
And if you're brave enough.  The HCF (Halt Catch Fire) instruction.  :)
