Interesting! I never saw any collections outside of the String views implement that, probably because the swift standard library docs don’t publish underscore-prefixed protocols.

The ease of getting a new copy of an array and mutating it means code needing the ability to append (for instance) today will be declared using an explicit Array type. If this was desired to be fixed, it would require more protocols (ModifiableCollectionType?)
