Yes, it would. The IC bus is two signal lines that float high and can be driven low by any connected device (so, the same as what the calculator already supports). The data transfer protocol is, naturally, different.

Another advantage of IC would be that you could also attach standard off-the-shelf IC slave devices to the bus and share them on the "network"; there's a wide variety of these such as EEPROMs, RAMs, real time clocks, displays, and so on and so forth. I've written some IC routines, but they only support a single master on the bus (ie, one calculator talking to a bunch of slave components). Maybe I should tart them up and release them as a starting point...
