Probably not.  Can you point to a project everybody has heard of
that keeps track of a path that begins with an exclamation point?

With clarification to the documentation that says "you cannot use !
to negate" and your "die on such an entry", we have been going in
the direction that forbids the use of such an entry, and making it
mean literal exclamation point is going sideways in the middle of
the road.

Besides, if you want to match a path that begins with an exclam, you
can always say "[!]", no?
