That's a worthy goal. But do we need to offer and implement the alternative? Could we not live without that syntax while we nail down the better import syntax?

I've used the explicit import syntax a few times to make it clear what I'm importing, but I wouldn't really miss it if it got removed in Swift 3, and an alternative was added back in Swift 3.1.
