Maybe. Or a space. It's unusual to have a low precedence prefix operator that can run right into its operand without any spacing or parentheses.

yield is one example but it must be followed by a space or some kind of left parenthesis or bracket.

Thanks for editing this.

The issue remains: EIBTI vs. "consistency" with F.p.apply. I don't think "JS has implicit conversions" as a general rule should weigh in -- we are trying to live that down, so we need a strong, more specific reason.
