Except that both "etc." and "..." independently convey a sense of
continuation, which means that using both at once is both redundant
(just one will do) and difficult to argue how to typeset (since 'etc.'
is often written with an explicit '.' to emphasize that is an
abbreviation, does that mean you have to write 'etc.''...' for a total
of 4 dots?).
