In the case of singletons there's very little difference, but (as I now see Christian has pointed out), with sequences the effect is quite different.
Also, of course, "!" changes the context item, so
@address => replace(@postcode, "", "q") works, while
@address ! replace(@postcode, "", "q") doesn't.
