> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

This looks really great!  Thank you team for all of your hard work on improving the numeric protocols in Swift 3.

> 	* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

Yes.  The current protocols leave a lot of room for improvement, which we see in this proposal.

> 	* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?

Yes very much so.

> 	* If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

I have not.

> 	* How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

I read the proposal when a draft was available and again tonight.  I have also encountered some of the challenges described with the existing protocols.
