There could be some similarity. For example, the library could provide an enum facility like this:

        enum_ e("a", 1, "b", "c");
        assert(e.size() == 3);
        assert(e.get("a") == 1);
        assert(e.get(1) == 2);

There's no need for enum_traits or enumerators, since we have the object e.

Regarding class_traits, the LLVM code representation is approximately a platform independent assembly language. So, no inheritance, virtual functions, or templates. That's why I chose to create an EDSL for a C-like language. class_members could be relevant, though.
