[swift-evolution] Require parameter names for ENUM Associated Types?

Has there been any discussion of REQUIRING names for associated types in an enum?
Current = “case error (String, Int)” // No names
Proposed = “case error (errorString: String, errorCode: Int)” // Has names
I know that Swift allows this today — optionally. To me, it seems that requiring the parameter names would be more consistent with func syntax. The current syntax (defaulting to no names) leads to declaration of vars that look C-like, to me:
let myResult = Result.error (“It failed”, -999)
