-1 from me.

My experience with Objective-C taught me that I'm bad at thinking about
retain cycles every time I write code in a block or closure. Only requiring
self in closures in Swift has been a great way for me to avoid the bugs
caused by introducing retain cycles when self is captured in closures. This
proposal takes that extra needed reminder away from me, which will result
in more bugs (as my experience with Objective-C requiring self everywhere
has shown).
