Restricting to the operators of the 1960s is far too conservative.
Having the ability to create new operators is a good thing.

Abuse of Algol68 and Scala ability to have program defined operators to
create unreadable programs is just bad programming. 

The idea that a programming language designer and implementor should
tell programmers that they are incapable of correctly using a facility
leads us to Java.
