I think the main reason is the fact that @ has special meaning within
index entries: it tells where to put something for cases where the
automatical sorting fails.

I just googled and found the following advice:

»In order to place values with !, @, or |, which are otherwise escape
characters, in the index, one must quote these characters in the \index
command by putting a double quotation mark (") in front of them, and one
can only place a " in the index by quoting it (i.e., a key for " would
be \index{""}).

This rule does not hold for \", so to put the letter ä in the index, one
may still use address@hidden"{a}}.«

So perhaps

#+index: "@term
