Personally, I'm not fussed if the Intel assembly output can be assembled
with a particular assembler;  I'm interested in having a `readable'
assembly output to examine what x86 code is being produced by the

Speaking of which, has there ever been any consideration to producing
hex constants in the various text outputs for values that look better in
hex, e.g.  65280 is 0xff00.  There's probably some tests that could be
done before default to decimal.
