I’d prefer to not widen private before we have evaluated access control as a whole, as I believe private as it is today is the lowest, most restrictive-but-usable level of access control.

Can we get a clear answer from the core team as to whether a redesign of access control is going to be permitted post Swift 4.0? There are a few replies in this thread that are insinuating that no further changes will be permitted.
