OK!

In a way it makes sense for three different syntaxes as
otherwise why have three different ways of delimiting
it?

But in another way why does it make sense to have three
different syntaxes to begin with?

Is this something that happened along the way?

I guess the (kbd "...") is the most Lispic but I like
compact syntax - and [...] makes it look like a button
at that! Only you have to add a font-lock rule to get a
highlight...
