Typing on French keyboards, I feel that, although all the programming keys ~#{[|`\@]} must use a special gymnastics (AltGr + upper row (number) key). ` and ~ are worse as they are dead keys (on Windows) so need an extra space to make them appear.

But the main issue is, as people already stated, habits and readability. I am used to see \ as an escape symbol, it hardly carries the meaning of function.
When I see Luiz' example of \x,y,z(x+(x-2)*g(x,y,z-2*(x+y))-y*z)
I have some hard time to see it as a function definition with parameters...
Even harder time to see it as Lua code!
