Not really. Sometimes the app itself will be very consistent, never 
applying quotes, but an underlying driver will always apply quotes. The 
result is a mixed behaviour. There is nothing you or me can do about 
that. Notice that in the above case, neither app nor driver are 
violating their mandate, and both are well within their right to do so.

So long as the behaviour is regulated by a standard, there is nothing 
you and I can say against such practices.

You are welcome to join the other leg of this thread, then. That one is 
not CCed to advocacy, as it is 100% technical.
