[en] Why is "&" not tagged as CC?

In informal texts people tend to use “&” as a substitute for “and”. Why is “&” not tagged as “CC” like “and” is?
@Mike_Unwalla do you have an opinion?

Example where this causes a false alarm:

The rule HE_VERB_AGR has an exception for “CC” but not for “&”

Why is “&” not tagged as “CC” like “and” is?

Don’t know.

I added a POS for the ampersand character )https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/commit/76fa6fa287f64462ec35d57c595c1d815fa71a3c).
