I’m really sorry and I apologize if it sounded that way. I was just pragmatically pointing that it would take longer for us to achieve our goal that way.

It is a matter of priorities.
For some (not me) being pure Swift is a very high priority and I can see the thinking behind that.
For others pure Swift doesn’t matter so much for various different reasons, some may prefer Swift but chose C for pragmatic reasons, some are fine with C in general and don’t care, etc.
For yet another group C is as much a 1st-level language feature as C is a 1st-level language to Objective-C/C++.

And let me now do the Java 8 Update 111 :->
