Actually, the DS does have a bit of onboard memory. Unfortunately, it whipes clear every time you turn the system off. The memory is used for stuff like single card multiplayer, where somebody with the game transmits a small part of it to the other person's system, so they can play together without two copies.

Incidently, it's also used for demo downloads like you see at Gamestop, Target, etc. Which is coming to the Wii in the nearish future. A channel where you can download DS demos that'll stay on your system until you turn it off.

I guess in theory you could do something similar with old Game Boy games. The sleep mode for the DS is very efficient, so if you didn't mind having to play it and only it on your system until you beat it, it should be doable. Don't see it happening, but certainly feasable.
