For the same reasons as D6336, I don't think this should be builtin functionality, so I'm afraid I'll have to reject this.

Assuming a vector (a, b, c) is a complex number a + bi is not very clear and does belong in a Vector Math node, which should be just about 3D vectors.

But in general, I think complex number are just a bit too obscure to have as core functionality in shading nodes.

Thanks for the patch, but closing this revision since this not functionality I think we should have in core Cycles.
