How do I categorise glazing within non-curtain walls?

With a regular curtain wall, the glazing portion is classified as IfcPlate with PredefinedType set to CURTAIN_PANEL.

However, curtain panels are only used as an exterior wall of a building which is an assembly of components, hung from the edge of the floor/roof structure rather than bearing on a floor. (source)

There are other walls which have IfcMembers too such as shopfront walls or internal office partitioning with glazing. How should we properly classify the glazing portion in this scenraio?
