It sounds like you’re suggesting that a “sample” property (that returns a randomly chosen element) should be added to the standard library? You could suggest that on the swift-evolution list, though IMHO it seems like a pretty obscure feature that not many users would need.

I don’t understand the comparison with capitalizedString; this works after importing Foundation because of the bridging between String and NSString, which is an artifact of the Mac/iOS Swift 2.x’s dependency on the Cocoa frameworks.
