It is a string in both fundamental-mode and org-mode, that's what I'm
checking.  But it is a punctuation character in other modes and maybe
in our "minds".

I agree the intuition is misleading here, because ' is a punctuation

... which, strictly speaking, is not an org-mode problem if " is not
a punctuation character.

It encourages me to find a completely different solution.

The one I have in mind now is to use C-c : (and to move the current
C-c : binding to C-c C-:).  The reasoning is that we have

- fixed-width
- example blocks
- source code blocks

which often achieve a similar goal: to present some code snippets.
Source blocks are more powerful than example blocks which are more
powerful than fixed-width regions.  But you can currently edit them
all with C-c '.

So C-c : would call org-edit-src-code and C-c C-: would convert the
region to fixed-width region.

What you (and others) think?

Eric, what's your take on this, as the "father" of C-c ' ?
