I had thought / would be a shorthand for ly:moment-div, but I can see why you opted for rational output. As I stated, documentation would be critical to avoid confusion with such implicit type conversions.

What may actually be a surprising simplification is

That is pretty cool. I suppose if one knows (or infers) that iota uses + behind the scenes, this should probably not be *too* surprising.
