I'm thinking of this in terms of parallelization directives.  The 
optimizations that rely on such annotations would need to be done as 
early as possible, before any optimization that could invalidate them. 
If the annotation can become false, you are right---it's probably not a 
good idea to have it as the medium.  Other types of annotations that are 
"harmless" are probably good to have, for example "unroll-by" (assuming 
that this is a suggestion to the compiler, not an order).
