As Carl once related to me:
Semicolon was not picked because it's the LISP comment
character, the square brackets are not in REBOL because
they're found in FORTH, the reason for their use is based on
their position on the keyboard (home row) and the fact that
they are UNSHIFTED!! People will be typing these things ALOT
so they'd better be conveniently located and easy to hit.
REBOL doesn't want your fingers to hurt.
That's just an indication of the attention to detail that is
the REBOL standard.
Everyone essentially got the answer right-- A+! :-)
