There are also places where the middle end makes unnecessary distinctions. It would be perfectly reasonable to collapse POINTER_TYPE and REFERENCE_TYPE, perhaps with an extra bit to say if something is a reference, if that idea has meaning to the middle end. 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.
