But quotes do create a quotation mode; there is a start quote, and an
end quote, and what's between them is special. It's just that the
quotation mode isn't something to be interpreted by computer--it's
interpreted by wetware, not software. You would create a emoji mode
that would have to be interpreted by software, which is disliked.
