I have to say that — while the concerns of the others are certainly valid, especially with regards to namespacing — I do like this idea, especially how it unifies access control of lexical scopes with that of types and friends.

> Under the assumption that SE-0169 is adopted, Jeffrey B and I have been brainstorming about what a follow-on might look like. We want to address concerns that remain post-0169. Although this proposal is primarily additive, we feel it might just squeak in under Swift 4's gate as it targets potentially harmful language issues.
> We appreciate your feedback about the substance of the proposal. At this time, we're not looking for bikeshedding on design details. We will welcome that once the question of whether the proposal is sufficiently substantive is settled.  
> Given the extremely limited timeline and the high volume of list traffic, we're looking for specific concerns (or benefits) you see in this pitch instead of a flurry of "+1" and "-1" responses . Our primary question regards whether this is a suitable approach (it is strongly influenced by SE-0077) and flexible enough to cover at least some outstanding concerns raised in list threads over the past weeks.
