> didSet and willSet remain outliers in the general rule of conjoined lowercase keywords. Is there any support for bringing these outliers into the fold?

I don't think we shouldn't touch these until we know what accessors on property behaviors are going to look like. We could very well change these now and then change them back in the next version; that kind of bouncing back and forth is maddening for users. Better leave them alone for now and change them later if we decide to, than change them in Swift 3 and then have a high probability of changing them back in Swift 4.
