I can think of one reason. The Copyright symbol is NOT available for direct typing
on the keyboard (At least not on my 104 key US keyboard). Therefore it would
reduce the ease of entering comments (forcing the user cut and paste the symbol
from a reference file or an internet web page showing all symbols).

I think it is wise to make it as EASY AS POSSIBLE for programmers to add comments
as they are often already too lazy to put in sufficient documentation. Programmers don't need
any more hurdles to jump over or any more excuses to provide less documentation.

In my humble opinion :-)
