I routinely add comments to already merged Gerrit changes, assuming that 
authors and reviewers will see the corresponding mails Gerrit sends out 
to them.  If this is generally considered problematic, please let me know.

I don't think it's a major issue, just a minor nuisance (for stuff like 
seemingly randomly changing " {" to "\n{").  But even minor nuisances 
can pile up, and while git does have clever options to mitigate some of 
this, you need to remember to use those options, etc.
