Until, and if, the “resistance” presents some conceptual explanation of how 
this could cause harm (I’m not asking for anything concrete, just a logical 
series of events that causes a plausible problem in practice), my belief is 
that the Swift community will see this as unwarranted fear.

This is particularly true given that the proposal is completely consistent with 
previous design decisions in Swift, decisions which have served us well.
