    Yes, but that does not give you licence to swap the glyphs
    for two similar but different characters, nor make two
    different-looking characters look the same, nor similar
    mixups. One can make an "a" glyph that looks remarkably
    much like a "d", or make a "d" glyph that looks much like
    an "a". It's not a good idea, however. Doing so just annoys
    people. So I look forward to getting certain very commonly
    available fonts "fixed" ("made less annoying", if you prefer)
    w.r.t. quote mark glyphs.
