Glad I'm not the only one to reply that request ;-), and I have something to add as well:
Afair there's a discussion about including operator-methods as part of a type, but until this is possible, we have to rely on the current "private" if the operator needs full access (or methods that are called by the operator — I actually like this pattern, but others may disagree on that).
