    My guess was mainly based on the CLDR data that I mentioned:

    I expected it to have things wrong for Czech and Polish “only” the same
    way as most of the data is wrong, i.e. normal quotation marks and
    alternate (inner) quotation marks are reversed.

    If Polish actually uses „”, then the data is wrong in another way, too,
    and I guess someone who can cite authoritative references should propose
    a correction.
