[swift-users] @_transparent allowing a data member inside an enum inside MemoryLayout.swift

After reading the Ray Wenderlich website tutorial [1] about Unsafe Swift, I
was checking out this file [3] inside swift/stdlib/public/core titled
MemoryLayout.swift.  However, I was confused about the @_transparent before
the each data member inside the enum.  Why is this enum with the data
members allowed by the Swift 3 language?  What does @_transparent allow you
to do that you might not otherwise?  Could someone explain because the
documentation is still unclear [2]?
