Without expressing an opinion about chessai's proposal (which I have not really thought about): quantified constraints are in good shape and ready for prime time. They have limitations (e.g. you can't mention a type family to the right of the =>), but when they are valid, they work well. I'll never swear that a feature is bug-free, but I think it's reasonable to consider using quantified constraints in `base`.
