There is a pending request for 0x0015 for DW_LANG_OpenCL. See http://dwarfstd.org/ShowIssue.php?issue=100211.1&type=open

AMD may use DW_LANG_OpenCL in a commercial product "someday".

If there is no objection on the Dwarf Committee,
we can provisionally assign a LANG value of 0x0015
for the Go language.
