Sending "k7kbnatyahoo.com" wouldn't get much email to me.

For that matter, why send the "."?  Why not send "k7kbnatyahoodotcom"?  It'd work every bit as well.  The "@" is like any other punctuation mark, and indeed, it's like every other sound pattern in Morse code - unique unto itself.

The sound pattern (di dah dah di dah dit) has no other meaning in "International" Morse, and none in Japanese or Cyrillic as far as I know.  This makes it usable over several languages, since there's little or no possible confusion between "@" and any other letter/character.

My take, anyway.
