The current quote mechanism is built at the export framework level so
that each export back-end doesn't need to bring up its own recipe. I'd
rather not add back-end specific code unless it is an improvement.

So far, I don't see the improvement. Do you have an example of an Org
document that produces a wrong tex file, which would be correct if it
used "csquotes"?

True. And?

I gave you a solution to use "csquotes" feature in your documents.

I assume it will render poorly in setups that do not use that package.

I'm surprised that "csquotes" is compulsory in some setups. Of course,
it would be good to know about them so we can find a workaround.
