    I think that I have only heard it used as a verb after 'will' (I'll yes that) and would, and then not very often in BE.

    You mean you have never been "yessed"? And you've never "yessed" anyone.

    I would not have thought it to be used in the simple future to indicate an immediate action.


    I would think: simple present, simple past, past progressive, present progressive - and those only.
