These are high-precedence, same level as unary +/- etc. Unlike yield, 
which is at assignment operator level.

I'm simply questioning your "identifier not an operator symbol" razor 
here, when previously you argued "unary operators have higher 
precedence" without distinguishing the identifier-named unary ops of 
high precedence.
