We want a way to declare that the set of stored properties in a struct will never change, allowing clients to make assumptions about its layout. Unlike @closed enums, @fixedContents structs mostly behave the same. The one important difference is that it will be possible to define designated initializers of @fixedContents structs inside extensions from another module.

The "@fixedContents mostly doesn't change the behavior of a struct" makes me think it is unimportant for these two annotations to have the same name.
