Oh, I just picked it because control-@ is the nul character, and your commands would be nullified. I realize that's pretty weak, but we're talking about finding a punctuation mark to represent the concept of commands-are-currently-being-skipped, and it doesn't seem particularly worse than ^ to represent single-line mode. If somebody's got a better idea, fine, but there aren't that many unused punctuation marks to choose from, and I think it's better to use a punctuation mark rather than, say, a letter, like 's' for skip.
