Just a comment:

if "times" can be read as "multiplied by" this is no longer true with tuplet. 

With a triplet, fon instance, the more commonly point of view is to see it as 
"three in the space of two", but the times syntax changes this to be 
2/3. No problem if you know that it is times 2/3, i.e. visible durations 
multiplied by 2/3 give real durations. With the tuplet syntax it would be 
more logical to say  \tuplet 3/2 {}
