I can see value in allowing prefix and postfix operators to act as
operator embellishments, for instance to add accents to operators or
to change their relative size, or position.

If these embellishment prefix and postfix operators have a high
precedence and hence bind tightly to the adjacent operator then
I don't see any problems. Am I missing something?
