ICL PLAN3 asembler, anyone? :-)

More seriously, I agree with you and would add a second reason: doing
a little work in a language that is reasonably "close to the metal"
gives an insight into how the machine actually works, which stands you
in good stead when thinking about algorithms and resource usage in
those higher-level languages.

(And building a primitive CPU from components helps even more, but not
many of us get to do that any more!)
