> 	• What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I'm in favor of the change because it introduces more consistency to the language. I also like the proposal, because attribute arguments read like hash values now, which increases readability.

> 	• Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

Inconsistency always warrants change.

> 	• Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?


> 	• If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

Like Brent said, attributes in most other languages are an afterthought. Thus, drawing a comparison is difficult.

> 	• How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

Quick read.
