 `base.u8` type. For example, if `x` is a `base.u8` with value `200`, then `(x +
 70)` has value `270` and would overflow, but `(x ~mod+ 70)` has value `14`.
+#### Operator Precedence
+A ranking of arithmetic operators so that an expression like `a + b * c` is
+unambiguous (for the computer), equivalent to exactly one of `(a + b) * c` or,
+more conventionally, `a + (b * c)`. While good for brevity, Wuffs does not have
+operator precedence: the bare `a + b * c` is an invalid Wuffs expression and
+the parentheses must be explicit. The ambiguity (for the human) can be a source
+of bugs in other [security-concious file format
+Some binary operators (`+`, `*`, `&`, `|`, `^`, `and`, `or`) are also
+associative: `(a + b) + c` and `a + (b + c)` are equivalent, and can be written
+in Wuffs as `a + b + c`.
 #### Refinement Type
