SIGTZ is too long, considering that there's already a double arrow on the left and an indirection arrow can appear on the right along with a dot for local registers and a register number on top of all that.

SIG0 can indeed be confusing not when using the calculator but if you're discussing it and fail to make the distinction between the specific mode "SIG 0" (SIG with the mode argument zero) and the set of "SIG0" modes (SIG0 mode with an unspecified argument). I'm not sure this justifies using e.g. SIGZ instead of the IMO more expressive SIG0 name but it is a valid concern.
