The named types need to do all their sub-objects' initializations before any designated initializer ends. I want the former for array instances, not the latter. It’s important for numeric applications, so math arrays don’t have to be set twice, once for an arbitrary default and again for the real data.

I think he means that you can do
var x: (Int,Int)
x.0 = 0
x.1 = 1
This is generally not allowed for other aggregates outside of initializers.
