Perverted DOS idea

This is what happens to you when you study biochemistry all week.

I had a perverted idea of building a DOS emulator on a C64 -- i.e., have
the C64 emulate the 8086 in software, either in real time or some sort of
JIT compilation method.

How little memory could you run something like, say, DOS 3.3 in? All I
would be supporting is a basic command set like COMMAND.COM, EDLIN, DEBUG,
maybe XCOPY, etc. And are the INTs documented anywhere?

Just a perverted idea, like I said.
