Though actually, now that I think about it, the cascaded notation in S12 is illegal according to S03, since "does" is classified as non-chaining, which implies non-associative.
Wait a minute. Isn't "chaining" specifically referring to the idea that "A op B op C" implicitly becomes something like "A op B && B op C"? That would seem to be unrelated to the concept of associativity, other than the fact that you can't have chaining without associativity. Why would "does" have to be chaining in order to be associative? -- Jonathan "Dataweaver" Lang
