Some to me important things I'm missing:

- the switches -v and -l, which I found very useful while developing (-s sometimes maybe useful too)
- ALIGN for aligning
- SUBROUTINE, which allows local labelnames (very useful when your project is growing and you don't want to number labelnames). 
- IF, ELSE, ENDIF, which allow conditional compilation (i.E. see my River Raid or Starmaster disassemblies) 
- MACRO and ENDM, useful i.E. for defining serveral times used debug-code in combination with IF, ENDIF or to define unsupported illegal opcodes
- explain some more important operators: |, ^, ~ and that one should use [ ] instead of ( ) to group expressions

Have fun!
