Here what I can find regarding your question:

Equatable&Hashable for tuples?

we can't have [(type1,type2):type3] in Swift without declaration of new temporary
struct type and implement Equatable&Hashable for it.
It would be reasonable, IMO, even before we support the full generalization of
extensions on non-nominal types, to make tuples of Equatable/Hashable/Comparable
elements conform to the same protocols by fiat.

So... it seems like we all (including core team) want this, but this will not be
implemented in Swift4, as I understand.
