This is especially true as other standards refer to the way the quotes
are encoded now.
For instance, the new German keyboard standard DIN 2137:2012 (to be
published in June) allows to enter the quotation marks directly (for
users who do not want to be dependent of the automatisms in Microsoft
Word etc.). This standard in turn is based on the international
keyboard standard ISO/IEC 9995-3:2010, which also refers to the quotation
marks as they are encoded in Unicode (i.e. ISO/IEC 10646).
