Plus, it would be useful even for "normal" users; speaking of personal
experience, it took me a while, for instance, to understand that the
dot actually meant a thick line.
I guess, the dot first appeared in "|.", where it means "end the piece", just like a dot is normally used to end a sentence. Then, it was in some sense logical that ".|" means thick thin, if "|." means thin thick which then generalized into ".|." (but not completely, since you only get two thick lines, not a thin one inbetween).
