That's documentation for Lisp program writers.
It is a weirdness for Emacs users, so I think the aspects
that affect users should be in the Emacs Manual.

Maybe that should be part of what it says about curly quotes
conversion in the Emacs Manual.

I am not insisting this particular option is worth including there.
Maybe it is, but that's not my point.  I think the fact that this
conversion EXISTS should be there.
