I will make sure the next version of the FAQ/Ref includes more general names. Should we instead use the Mother/Grandmother/Daughter naming system? Or should we opt for just "left-associative" and "commutative" and leave it at that?

I would prefer speaking names like "right-associative". However the particular words right- and left-associative have another different meaning.
Left-associative means a(bc)=b(ac) and Right-associative (ab)c=(ac)b.
So I would suggest to use the words "left-bracketed" or "right-bracketed" instead. However I dont know wether that is an acceptable word construction for a native English speaker.
