Where it makes sense, sure.  But e.g. DW_TAG_structure_type vs.
DW_TAG_class_type is something that nothing in the middle-end nor backend
should ever care about, only the frontend (just for the default access
and for diagnostics).  For the middle-end or backend (and most of the
frontend as well) struct { private: ... } is equivalent to class { ... }
and class { public: ... } is equivalent to struct { ... }.
