That's no longer true as of yesterday's master commit 1a3518e7c361a9ceaa017c1334a83d14e0651a4e. On a terminal that cannot display curved quotes, Emacs master now uses different glyphs for the quotes’ ASCII replacements, because the replacements are shadowed. The shadowed glyphs are easily distinguishable on my Linux console. Users shouldn’t need to configure Emacs specially, or their Linux console specially, to get this behavior. So this objection no longer applies.
