But ! as used in English is not a letter. The IPA *letter* that looks like
an exclamation mark (but is a (click) *letter*) is U+01C3, ǃ. (I do not
doubt that ! is the origin of this letter, nor do I doubt that ! is used as
fallback for this letter. But for properly encoded IPA (and some other
orthographies) ! is the letter you are referring to, ! is not since it is
not a letter.)
