Why is the arrow carrying the “Has Value Semantics Bit” rather than it being part of a protocol composition on an argument type, or a convention bit on the parameter like ‘inout’?

Even the current late-binding of a proper function type in closure inference is an artifact of the old function type representation that needs to go away (you’re probably running into parameter inference doing weird things which is a symptom of the larger problem). What does it matter that the two function types have different ExtInfo? What are you trying to do here?
