> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
-1. I'd like to split my review of this proposal in its two features:
The loss of extensions as an access modifier grouping construct is what I really dislike. IMHO, extensions are a natural way to express that, and I wouldn't want to have `group` to achieve the same results.
But being explicit about the access of a protocol conformance seems like a nice feature to me. But not enough to warrant the above loss.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
I'm not sure the problem really warrants a change.
> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
I don't think so. I have the impression it makes the rules more complicated.
> * If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
