We discussed variadic overloads during the manifest redesign proposal but ultimately rejected <https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0158-package-manager-manifest-api-redesign.md#alternatives-considered> it. We could add an overload for a singular source file (instead of variadic) but I think its simpler to just have one option, and it is also easier when you want to extend your source list form one to two.

I think parsing is not a concern because tools are expected to ask for JSON representation and not directly parse the swift file.
