Yes, maybe.  This would be much more possible than supporting
arbitrary paper sizes.  I've tested the following definition of
@bsixpaper:

\def\bsixpaper{{\globaldefs = 1
\afourpaper
\internalpagesizes{140mm}{100mm}%
{-6.35mm}{-12.7mm}%
{\bindingoffset}{14pt}%
{176mm}{125mm}%
\globaldefs = 0
}}

and it seems to produce OK results, at least for some pages without
hard-to-break lines.  Could you give this a go and report if any of
the parameters should be changed?  You could use it by inserting

@tex
\gdef\bsixpaper{{\globaldefs = 1
\afourpaper
\internalpagesizes{140mm}{100mm}%
{-6.35mm}{-12.7mm}%
{\bindingoffset}{14pt}%
{176mm}{125mm}%
\globaldefs = 0
}}
@end tex
@bsixpaper

near the start of your input file.
