I’m not prepared to champion this for Swift 3, I think there are enough other important proposals on the table, and this is an area that requires careful design. If I did have to pick features that we touched on in this thread from most to least important I would say:
1. Indirect structs
2. Mutability of reference/class types
3. Automation or annotations for CoW types.
4. Annotations that constrain function side effects.
