Oh I agree, that was partly my point though; while this proposal may leave us with the "un-Swifty" issue of being unable to explicitly handle invalidation, it should be possible to solve that later, i.e- this proposal does’t make us any more vulnerable to that problem than we are now, but I definitely agree that we could do with some kind of invalidation mechanism in future that developers can actually implement or respond to. I guess I was more thinking out loud about whether the problem affects the proposal or not, but I don’t think that solving it will place any restrictions on the API as proposed, definitely deserves a proposal of its own once the new indexing system is in place though!
