I can't see a reason why we would want to go there.  And if your design
for vectorized operations requires different user-visible semantics than
for the same operation non-vectorized, don't you have a problem anyway?

That has nothing to do with whether the cast is user-defined.  It has to
do with not wanting to automatically unify types across type-category
boundaries (in this case, numeric vs. composite categories).  That's per
step 4 here:


and it's not an easy thing to get rid of because if you're considering
more than one type category then the heuristic about preferring "preferred
types" breaks down --- how do you know which category's preferred type to
