I believe this is essentially what Chris Johns is doing with
My Right Boot.  It is at http://www.cybertec.com.au/mrboot.htm

I would greatly appreciate anyone who can 
make progress in a standard procedure that separates RTEMS
from applications and provides separate loading of applications.
If this can be done in a processor independent manner, that would
be fantastic.
