comment How to make font that clearly distinct “b” and “d” without sacrificing legibility
Yes - everybody knows that rcx is implicitly used as a counter, nobody knows r2. Other instructions use other registers, including rbx and rdx. Making it implicit is much more complicated than changing the font - it requires knowing all instructions. In MIPS, you never see $29 - only $sp - so you want names, not numbers.

This would be most confusing with instructions that implicitly access a known register (e.g. ecx used as a counter with the rep prefix).
