I'm sure you will get lots of opinions on this. :)
I use scred and asm almost exclusively on a real Coco when programming
in assembly for OS-9. I've also done some C programming which forces the
use of a linker.
Now that we can easily transfer files from a PC to a Coco or even run
files stored on a PC with Drivewire or Roger's programs, you could use
any full screen editor to create source. You can even assemble the
source first on the PC.
