Yeah, my point was that any keybindings that require an additional Shift (e.g. for @) are less convenient, at least for me.
I had totally forgotten about the other keybinding, mostly because Emacs advertises in the minibuffer the @ version.

As for the consistency point - while one can argue there's some degree of consistency (e.g. between a few of the mark commands and some mark commands and other related commands), I don't think there's full consistency across the mark commands. E.g. what does `C-x C-p` fit with? It would have been nice if the commands have a single prefix (e.g. M-h as the prefix and bindings like `M-h p`, `M-h s`; totally random example, my point is simply that keybindings orgnized is this manner are easier to remember/discover) and some additional convenience keybinding when needed (e.g. like `C-M-SPC`).

I use C-M-SPC all the time, mark-sexp is definitely a great command and that key 
binding is easier to type.

However, I do not use C-M-@ (nor M-@) because on my Italian keyboard the @ 
character requires AltGr to be typed and I find M-AltGr-@ not too comfortable a
