It goes against standard convention and would only cause confusion.Please explain why, No?
It's hard to answer a question like this unless you describe why you this it would make more sense to do so.Would it not make more sense if Boolean expressions used The + symbol as AND, & the . symbol as OR?

In Boolean algebra, the + symbol is the symbol for logical addition. A logical OR performs a functional equivalent.Would it not make more sense if Boolean expressions used The + symbol as AND, & the . symbol as OR?
What do you mean by "logical addition" and "logical multiplication"?In Boolean algebra, the + symbol is the symbol for logical addition. A logical OR performs a functional equivalent.
