Only if you are guaranteed that no externally called code will modify it. In that case, you FPC itself also save/restore that register before and after calling any potentially non-FPC code, since other applications may make the same assumption. If you don't make that assumption, at the very least you still have to reload it after any call to potentially non-FPC code.
