But is this not also often used to make “bigger” expressions / conditions more readable?
I think already the example from https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/documentation/Swift/Conceptual/Swift_Programming_Language/AdvancedOperators.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40014097-CH27-ID41 is a good example
2 + 3 % 4 * 5 is not at all readable for me without parentheses.
