Would this simplify the solution?

If so, I would suggest NOT changing all builtin catch clauses to be HandlerType::SynthesizedCatch.  Instead:
1. introduce a new HandlerType::PromiseCatch
2. introduce an intrinsic function e.g. @isPromiseCatch(), and call it as the first statement inside the Promise builtin's catch that you want to be recognized as HandlerType::PromiseCatch.
3. modify the BytecodeGenerator to recognize the @isPromiseCatch() instrinsic and decorate the surrounding catch block as needing to be of type HandlerType::PromiseCatch.

Thereafter, do whatever magic you had in mind that comes from being able to identify the catch block as of type HandlerType::PromiseCatch.
