When programming in z80 assembly, I've always used/use a rather ad-hoc "let's use these registers, the function takes fewer ld's that way"-calling convention, but of course it has fewer registers and many are special-purpose so there isn't that much choice to begin with. It may at first seem like that would mean more ld's in the callers (and thus more overall bloat), but it usually doesn't work out like that - the ld's in the callers are generally impossible to get rid of when they're needed, and are generally already absent when the "special-purpose" stuff shows up because the same rules apply to both caller and callee.
C compilers also fail spectacularly to produce sane code for z80. Most of the code is bloat that does stupid things with the stack and ix (frame pointers are a terrible idea on z80).

none of this is helpful, I know Smile | :)
