        In backquote expansion, the symbol for backquote (`) is treated

Since backquote expansion is purely syntactical, I don't think the
backquote symbol should have any significance in the process.

So does that mean that using `backquote' as a symbol to represent ` is disqualified? (As opposed, for example, of either using `quote' or ' for quoting.)
