I realise now that I am wrong. Procedure calls are not invisible in
the obj file because there is a possibility that two obj files use the
same segment name and these must be merged, hence relocation must
occur. When I posted my previous message I was thinking of compiler
output where the segment names are distinct (derived from the source
file names). But I forgot that the assembly language programmers are
still out there and the obj file format must cater for their taste!
