Oh yeah... tricky.  So... there are various situations to handle with

  * Was the field even indexed w/ Trie, or indexed as "simple text"?
    It's useful to know this "automatically" at search time, so eg a
    RangeQuery can do the right thing by default.  FieldInfos seems
    like the natural place to store this.  It's basically Lucene's
    per-segment write-once schema.  Eg we use this to record "did any
    token in this field have a Payload?", which is analogous.

  * How did you tune your payload-vs-trie-range setting.  OK, I agree:
    this is most similar to "you changed your analyzer in an
    incompatible way, so, you have to reindex".  Plus, during merging
    we can't [easily] translate this.  So we shouldn't try to keep
    track of this.

  * We have a bug (or an important improvement) in how Trie encodes
    terms that we need to fix.  This one is not easy to handle, since
    such a change could alter the term order, and merging segments
    then becomes problematic.  Not sure how to handle that.  Yonik,
    has Solr ever had to make a change to NumberUtils?
