When talking about powers of the augmentation ideal, we only use the original operations of our structure.

So in the example where the structure is a group $G$, its group-ring ${\mathbb Q}G$ is again a structure with just one binary operation (multiplication) plus an artificially-added auxiliary operation "addition" which does not participate in taking powers of the augmentation ideal.

An alternative to all that is to start with a structure whose ${\mathcal O}_\alpha$'s are linear spaces (or at least, ${\mathbb Z}$-modules) and all of whose operations are multi-linear. Here again "addition" will have a special role and will not participate in forming powers of the augmentation ideal. --Drorbn 15:46, 25 March 2012 (EDT)
