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.
