It's my feeling that in many cases, a generic parameter is constrained by at least one important protocol or base class that's worth calling out up front, so it's reasonable to allow things like 'func foo<C: Collection>(x: C) -> C.Element' without banishing the 'Collection' constraint too far from the front of the declaration.

That's definitely a reasonable position worth discussing.
