Comment(by rgommers):

 Alan, I don't have a problem with adding the explicit strings "/=", "+=",
 etc. to that section of the documentation if that would help. A patch on
 the doc wiki, github or here is welcome.

 As to the location and visibility, we're just going to have to agree to
 disagree then. Here's my reasoning:

   - These things are called "in-place" operations, searching for that
 turns up the correct page.
   - A red warning box is not used often, and is about as visible as it
 gets.
   - The section "arithmetic operations" to me is a more logical place to
 look than the section "math routines" because, well, they're arithmetic
 operations.

 IMHO this ticket can be closed again, but I'll leave it to someone else to
 do so.
