I think at least some confusion may stem from conflating two issues:

* single vs double quotation marks (visual);
* outer vs inner quotation marks (semantic).

The presentation of the table upthread strongly suggests the
outer/inner semantic, while the user-faced feature itself is about
mapping single and double quote-like key presses to typographic
quotation marks.
