It would be interesting to see if there are any relocations or any other hints to help make correct function bounds from a stripped (.dynsym only) ELF file. In MachO we have a LC_FUNCTION_STARTS load command (kind of like an ELF note) that contains all start addresses of all functions even if we have all private symbols stripped. It might be worth checking if there is anything in ELF that could help us determine function starts for a given binary, then this wouldn't be an issue right? A few things I can think of are the EH frame FDEs can give you all function bounds for all functions that have unwind info. Relocations might be able to help you, but they might just be noise.
