This is an additive proposal, thus out of scope for Swift 3.

Beyond that, as someone downthread mentioned, the major thing missing here is a strong motivation for *why* we should do this.  You say only "we see that the protocol requirements and conformances are actually equivalent and should both be valid.” but adding redundant ways to say the same thing motivation.
