yes, I agree. I am not sure how much information to keep though.
Would the following be ok?

  /* If this type has already been declared, then reuse the same type
     rather than allocating a new one.  This saves some memory.  */

The current comment is:

        /* Now check to see whether the type has already been
           declared.  This was written for arrays of cross-referenced
           types before we had TYPE_CODE_TARGET_STUBBED, so I'm pretty
           sure it is not necessary anymore.  But it might be a good
           idea, to save a little memory.  */
