I've never seen % used that way.  * is already accepted as a char that
marks the variable as "OK to use with defvar".  As for +, I've never
seen Elisp code use it, so I don't see a need for it.

Note also that Using *...* for dynamic vars doesn't save the author from
using a prefix, since that is needed for modularity reasons.
