Thanks for clarification.
I’ve created a bug report: https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-2915

> Yeah, even for non-tuples it may be worthwhile to offer a warning that there isn't a currently-visible protocol conformance for the type of the operand when it's a concrete type. You could easily enough silence the warning by writing 'as Any as? P' or something like that if you really want to.
