I agree, it isn't.  The '@codequote' Texinfo commands were new to
Texinfo 5.0.  I've been using them to bracket sections of the manual
that I have reviewed for correct apostrophe/grave accent glyph usage,
which in practice tends to mean I've reviewed the section for other
style issues as well.

In the long term, I'll have reviewed the entire manual thus and
@codequote commands will bracket the whole thing, except for any regions
where we want to depict directional single quotes, as example troff
output perhaps.
