Yes. In this case, the jump at 0:C0 doesn't point to the stub. It points directly into the code segment, as I said above.

Yes it does. But if you were to use the CALL 5 entry pointer anyway it would be more convenient to use it for this purpose as well instead of tracking down the (used or unused) Int27 stub in the DOS data segment.
