The usual rule about this is that if you don't like syntax you're not
supposed to criticize it until you come up with a better suggestion.

My suggestion is no operator at all.

:- pred foo bar.

This is completely the same as the syntax for predicate types (and
modes) and is how we use equivalence types everywhere else (no special
operators or syntax, just use the equivalence wherever you would
normally put the equivalent type).
