I floated a draft proposal a while back that addressed exactly this use


It's purely additive so it's effectively shelved till post-Swift-3, and
there are still some issues up for debate (the discussion thread was here <
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.swift.evolution/18495>), but it
would likely address many of these concerns without going to the extreme of
forbidding explicit implementation of Equatable or the other suggestions
offered here (which I wouldn't support).
