[swift-evolution] [SE-0011] Re-considering the replacement keyword for "typealias"

I second placeholder as the most rational keyword. Every description of the distinct usage of type alias refers to is a placeholder type. placeholder is one word(circumventingCase_issues) and is more descriptive of what it is than associated*. Seems like an easy win. Is there a some reason I am missing why *type* or associated* are better keyword fits?
