C'mon this is not a concern of the developers making apps that help make this ecosystem popular and thus the devices they sell. I understand your point, but I can also understand that it is fair for a non Apple employee or non Apple stock options holder to question resources allocation.

I suspect that any such solution is going to require an additional commitment since 1). we will no longer be able to leverage shared mailing-list infrastructure that is run by people outside the Swift team, 2). it's pretty much a given IMO that any solution which encourages richer and easier interaction is going to require additional community curation.
