Thank you both.

To Ian: but a slice is not a matrix or a list.

To Axel: append() and copy() compliment indexing and slicing well enough.

It would be a shame if ambiguity is indeed the reason. We've accepted 1 + 1 
as numeric addition and "a" + "b" as string concatenation. For a slice, 
perceived as a window on a string of elements, concatenation is 
unambiguous. [a, b, c] + [x, y, z] = [a, b, y, z]
