That was quite unexpected for me as a user. I checked sed script like this:

And that implementation detail were highly unexpected... What is the point
of multiline edits if quotes are unreliable for certain characters?

Disabling history expansion fixes all of these problems (at the cost
of history expansion, obviously).
But doesn't allow use of 'TAB's at the beginning of a physical line (or
a line with nothing but other white space on it (TABS & SPACES)...

That breakage is really a pain for someone who's used to cut/paste
working from editor->command line.
