Fewer things to explain is always good.
Part of the reason I'd segregate the primitives into their own module
would be to make it easier to say, "We don't explain this." (This
would have to be accompanied by a practice of providing public
functionality that covers everything the primitives do, so that the
primitives are indeed uninteresting.)
