If your team of programmers tried to build something like Servo in assembly, you would never complete the task because the task is so laborious and error prone. Finding and correcting all the bugs in your hand-written assembly isn't feasible.

So it's theoretically possible to express such a program in assembly language, but it's not something humans could realistically produce without tools such as Rust.
