The consequence if we do not formally separate the operators (verbs) from
the identifiers (nouns) is that white space will be needed around all
operators. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it would be a
significant and incompatible departure from today's Swift, both in terms of
actual source code breakage and in terms of the "look and feel" that many
people feel passionate about.
