The genesis is likely the use of HTML editing software, such as
FrontPage, that does not support U+2019. The Unicode editors removed the
&39; from all the UAXs as part of preparing them for print in the back
of the book, but I wouldn't expect them to have the time or bandwidth to
do that for translations - esp. since none of them could proof the
result for most of the languages, so it's better to leave them as submitted.
