This small inconsistency can lead to pretty hard debugging session.

I think the protocols will still need some extra work because, as Howard
Lovatt said, people get confused about which method will be called when
methods of a type conflict with methods in a protocol extension.

But this is a good small step towards a more consistent model, so it seems
good to me.

Quick reading.
