> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?
-1. Extensions appear to me to follow the access control of the rest of Swift: Implicit to the type you are extending, and you can either / both declare as part of the extension declaration or on the method. I don’t see how this is confusing, and I expect people will be more confused that extensions don’t follow the convention of the rest of Swift for Access Control.

> 	* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
I don’t think this warrants a change.

> 	* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
No. This seems to go against the direction of Swift.

> 	* 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?
A reading of the proposal.
