It's bad habit to quote oneself, but I'd like to add that b) isn't an issue
anymore.  I overlooked paragraph 2.4.5 which explicitely removes | and ^
from the set of valid operators.

(Paragraph 2.4 also defines that "2=-1" shall be parsed as "2 =- 1"
(longest sequence of matching non-whitespace characters) and not as "2 = -1".)
