> Why?

Because one syntax is easier to learn than two. Timon said "when I wrote my
very first function template in D, I used the proposed syntax and was confused
that it didn't work", and that makes two of us (well, I quickly realized why
the compiler complained, but my first instinct is to use !, and it feels really
dumb that I can't).

Plus, the parser might be able to handle ! more quickly, since it will know to
expect "TemplateParameterList" instead of "Parameters".
