You're essentially talking about instruction bundles (as opposed to VLIW), right? I see a few similar suggestions (e.g. by rwessel), and it's an interesting idea.

I'm sure that there are some merits to such a solution. One obvious advantage would be good instruction packing & code density. 16 bits per instruction is too small, even for destructive operands, and 32 bits is too large for destructive operands and just a couple of bits too small for non-destructive operands, etc. Having the option to have more specialized instruction sizes (e.g. 18 bits or 36 bits, etc) could potentially help with encoding efficiency (unless the advantage gets eaten by NOP padding if the bundle is too narrow). Another advantage is that you get very predictable instruction fetch boundaries (similar to AArch64, but even less granular), so it *should* be beneficial for wide decoders (if done right).

There are probably some complications w.r.t. branching and instruction addressing and such (e.g. you would effectively get two different address spaces: one for the byte-addressed instruction data in data memory, and another for the PC). One possibility would be to have the N lower bits of the PC / branch target indicate an instruction within the bundle, assuming that there are at most 2^N instructions in a bundle. Another obvious problem is NOP padding. It feels like the equivalent of delay slots: it may be possible to have the compiler fill the slots by reordering instructions across bundle boundaries, but not 100% of the time.
