"sum" can be a verb, but yeah, "product" can't really, so it probably
makes sense to follow the noun pattern if we're wanting to be
consistent more than brief.

"and" as a noun is unusual, but fwiw dictionary.com says that there's
a noun sense that means "conjunction" in the logical sense, which is
exactly what we're doing here.
