For example, a source variable may be optimized and different pieces may be in different places including memory of multiple address spaces, registers, etc. Describing this situation with a DW_AT_address_class on a source language variable is not possible as it provides a single address space that applies to the variable as a whole. The concept of "address space" is not available on the expression stack where a composite location description is created.
