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

If we’re talking about non optional values here, then I don’t produce a possible expensive copy of my associated values (sure it depends on the type, COW etc.), but that’s my main point for excluding the the associated values.

Somewhere in my code I also have a semi schema subscript which evaluates the enum case like this:

if case .double = $0 { return true } else { return false }
There is just no better way for this check. I wish I could write something like return .double ~= $0 there.

I suppose I'm not seeing why it's important to exclude the associated values from pattern matching. What do you gain except saving a few characters?
