My oldest 11/750 shipped with a pair of RK07s - back in the day, you
could put an OS on one, user data on the other.

Not that I ever heard of, but for 18-bit Qbus machines, you could
probably get away with a Qniverter. Dunno about 22-bit systems.
Probably have to roll your own driver, or at least ensure that
the disk buffers were in the low 256K.
