Unlike functions, subscripts still *do* usually have unlabeled first parameters, but they are written so rarely that I'm not sure it's worth being inconsistent with literally every other parameter construct in the language.

All subscript parameters _are_ unlabelled by default.

There are also different rules for:

* operator functions (which cannot have argument labels);
* closure parameters (which cannot have parameter names).
