Should we add `a * b` for vectors?

Generally I expect that a binary operation denoted by + or *
would produce an element from the original domain, e.g.
multiplying two matrices yields a matrix, concatenating two
strings yields a string, etc. So personally I don't like this
Note that in the case of 3-dimensional vectors, people might
confuse this for the cross product. I would go with dot(a,b) and
cross(a,b) (if you support it).
