That isn't correct.  There is a comment somewhere in the doc or code
about quotation marks intentionally _not_ having string syntax in text
modes or globally.  Anyhow, guillemets are not always used balanced;
Hart's Rules discusses that, for instance.

Why do people think the guillemets are special cases which shouldn't
be treated like other quotes, or how Unicode says?

Oh, sorry.  Where does that get set up?
