As long as we're on the subject of whose claims are assertions without
evidence, can you produce a single example of a system that actually
supported using different glyphs for these (apart from the typewriter
glyph, which isn't typographically appropriate for anything), and what
those glyphs might have looked like?

And, lest we get off the subject, The reason not to use U+2019 or any
other non-ASCII character in the default scratch buffer text is because
the user may not be able to save it, not because the ASCII one is more
typographically or semantically appropriate.
