Maybe a TREE_LIST if there are explicit template arguments to a function 
template, where TREE_PURPOSE is the number of explicit arguments and 
TREE_VALUE is the number of non-default arguments.

I'd document it at the definition of NON_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE_ARGS_COUNT. 
The SET/GET macros should become functions.
