Well, actually I think of this more as something that tells me how a
bunch of *operators* relate.  As an example, "=" and friends over the
string datatypes will be one group, and "~=~" and friends will be
another group over the very same types.  So to me "data type class"
would really miss the point.

The alternatives I'd been thinking about were "operator set" and
"operator collection", but I don't really see any advantage over
"operator group" for either ...

True, ya got me ;-)
