That's correct. There's no formal/single verification of debug info metadata. There are asserts scattered throughout debug info handling, but they're hardly complete.

Yep. It's something we've considered but haven't found time for yet. It would allow is to remove much of the ad hoc testing/verification and consolidate it in one place.
For now, ideally, anything produced by DIBuilder should be valid. If you find cases where that's not true, we should at least add asserts to DIBuilder to sure that up a bit.
