There are also places where the middle end makes unnecessary

If it doesn't have meaning to the middle end, then we should could use
a language-specific bit to distinguish these concepts in front ends.
It does have a meaning, mostly to the debuging info writers.
Yes, but there's still no reason they have to be separate tree codes, as
opposed to a bit on POINTER_TYPEs.
