`Collection` does require that `startIndex <= endIndex`, and in general, that `i < c.index(after: i)` for all `i` in `c.startIndex ..< c.endIndex`. Unfortunately, this may not be explicitly documented anywhere.

(Also unfortunately, `index(after:)` doesn't appear at all in Apple's documentation for `Collection`!)
