I wasn't clear enough here; I didn't mean that there shouldn't be a 
check for simple structs and treating them differently, it's just that 
there is a minor complexity in Parser/Sema about starting with a 
CXXRecord but changing it to a Record later, but, as I mentioned later, 
the merging of Records is way more problematic.

There is going to be a parsing of struct definitions like this (in C++):

-parse the struct definition and create CXXFields
-if the struct/class contains only public CXXFields, replace them with
