I'd be happy with a warning + fix-it too.
What's the right way to do this? An attribute like "@implicit" on the
initializers? Perhaps a special case in the compiler, since these are
already "known protocol kinds"
If someone can offer guidance on the right direction, I'd be happy to write
up a proposal.
