[swift-dev] Emitting redundant protocol conformances to support type lookup

So would one define a putative TypeMetadataRecord that is identical to a ProtocolConformanceRecord but only contains the metadata reference (and reference type discriminant)?

Is emitNominalMetadataRef() the right place to create (not emit) these records?
