I don't think there is any. Use a label instead. Or do you want to  
jump into the middle of an instruction?

While it's not user-visible, it's still the name of a cpu register.  
And given that its 64 bit cousin (RIP) is exposed, it might also be  
exposed in 32 bit mode in the future (although this is unlikely).
