The “generics manifesto” is a set of ideas that are *heavily* biased by my own goals for the generics system. They’re not plan-of-record, and some might even be terrible ideas for Swift. Each thing there still needs to go through the usual swift-evolution process to get proper design treatment before becoming a part of the language, and I expect that process to flush out better ideas/problems with those ideas/unexpected interactions/etc.
