VEXcode using wrong color of motors

I was wondering if it is legal/safe to use the different color of motors (say marking a green motor as a red one in code) for the VEX EDR Competition.

As far as I know it’ll only effect the readings from the IME. It’s legal but there isn’t really a reason to do it.

You can do it. It is competition legal. The reason you can mark the motors as different gear cartridges in VexCode, is because you can control motors with RPM in VexCode. In order for the code to accurately reflect what the motor RPM is, you should set the cartridge type. If you are just doing some messy coding without any time, than you can totally ignore the cartridges.
This post talks about PROS, but I believe the same applies to VexCode
