I do not believe anything after reload depends on those annotations,
so I guess it's OK.

You should update rtl.texi though since it discusses the meaning of
QI/HI mode on an INSN.  You should also mention that the target files
may depend on this mode to be preserved and that passes after sched
should not alter the mode of an INSN.
