For me it would be because that is what is on my keyboard.

What do you mean by "option"?
Shift-. gives me ?

Ah!  I don't have an Irish Extanded keyboard.

I admit that sometimes Q and q are a problem.  Car license plates are in upper-case only; but fortunately the one I went with doesn't use either Q or q.

Some of your characters didn't show up on my computer.  On my PDA, those that do show up are completely different symbols.
If I made changes to the klingon writing, I would move the q to k.
