Re: "Transparency" with respect to differentiation

I found out the answer to the last question of the OP (i.e. myself):

Advanced Topic "Low-Level Input and Output Rules", 2.9.17, gives an
example how to change the output format, still using the mathematical
definition. If I want to display the function as prefix "d":

In[1]:=
quat /:
   MakeBoxes[quat[arg_],
     StandardForm] :=
    RowBox[{MakeBoxes[d,
       StandardForm], MakeBoxes[arg]}]

In[2]:=
quat[asdf]

Out[2]=
d asdf

Letting this "quat" or "d" let pass the differentiation to its argument
is still an open question.
