I don’t think so: It is not ideal that the longest forms, `&&` and `||`, are by far the most current ones. But this is history that we cannot change.

Having to sets of logical operators, `&&`/`||` versus `and`/`or`, **with different precedence**, is very useful in idiomatic Perl, where they are typically used to express control-flow. But much less so in idiomatic JS.
