Or do you think checking the last DIE in that list should be always enough? That would seem to be the case for the dwarf I've seen, but I'm not sure if that is always correct..
Yeah, unfortunately I can't elaborate too much without seeing a bad example. If anything in the chain has a parent that is a struct/union or class might be enough, so we could ask each DIE in the specification or abstract origin chain if its parent is a struct/union/class and just return true if so?
