If someone wishes to write it this way, have at it.
But we're back to one of those things on which we're
likely to never agree. I believe that very common
conventions, across many forms of documentation, for
referring to number pad keys need to be known by
"the average computer user." It is no help to make
documentation longer, and more complicated, assuming
that this is not something commonly known, in my
Asterisk as the multiply operator and slash as the
divide operator predate the PC, and have been in use
in that way on many adding machines for decades now,
particularly after the PC appeared.
Numpad multiply and numpad divide need to be
understood under those terms, and I'd rather the
rare person who doesn't already know them do what
Mr. Russell did and ask. There's nothing wrong with
having a very occasional gap in common knowledge and
asking to fill it in.

then you destroy yourself.
