No Félix, no example in UIKit itself. I was thinking of higher-order applications or library functions that wrap any stateful API. A very artificial example involving UIKit :

	func f(@noescape(once) closure1: () -> (), @noescape(once) closure2: () -> (), @noescape(once) closure3: () -> ()) {

So unless it would be too complex to implement, I would support letting the compiler accept several once closures, without requiring any execution order, and without double-guessing the needs of the developer.
