Our assembler is primarily intended for hardware verification; it is not intended for application use. Manual asm on a Mill is extremely inhumane due to the difficulty of keeping track of belt contents manually; it’s not too hard to read but impractical to write.

Compiler output, which is also specializer input, is a non-textual graph structure. The specializer turns that into target binary, and you can inspect it or get listings in asm text, and even assemble it if you want, but the normal build cycle does not use an asm stage.
