Clearly we *can* but there's other bits (chiefly the cache code once we
acquire the ability to do block operations from cache) which really want
stuff to be 8 bit aligned.  I deliberately chose to make things byte
aligned so we have to think about this stuff before we do things that
make byte aligned stuff hard, it felt like if we were going to take a
complexity hit we probably want it to be on the odd register formats as
pretty much all of the more demanding modern devices seem to be going
for multiples of 8 bits.
