Correct, They are declarations. For their declarations an
internal TypeStruct / TypeUnion is created. Later Identifier are
resolved to those TypeQualified.
Same principle. Function are declarations and an internal
TypeFunction is created for the decl.
In addition when there's a need to express a function type, an
alias must be used, for example:
alias F = void(int);

they are. But it's hidden as type suffix:
void delgate (int)
