Yes: no.

For many of the same reasons you have outlined: operator, is already
defined for all types in the language and is too error prone -- it is
exactly the kind of thing that falls foul of individual formatting
preferences. Other operators are clearer and more robust, even if a
little less pleasing to the eye.

FWIW, it seems that retrospectively Bjarne questions the basic wisdom of
allowing overloading of operator, (Design & Evolution of C++, p247).
