here strings and symbols

It struck me that the new lexical syntax for symbols is also just a 'here string',
albeit with the fixed key "|".

Wouldn't it make more sense to have two forms of 'here string,' one within
a line and one spanning several lines, and then having a modifier indicating
string or symbol?
