I can't see any pros for it. In what way is ! associated with assignment or binding? It might as well be a arbitrary symbol.
(Yes, I know that ultimately *everything* is an arbitrary symbol, but some of them have very strong associations built on years or decades or centuries of usage.)
As Peter says, ! is associated with negation, as in !=, and to those of us with a maths background, name! simply *screams* "FACTORIAL" at the top of its voice.
My arguments for were in a previous message but there do not seem to be any responses to it.
Care to repeat those arguments?
