Follow-up Comment #11, bug #63354 (project groff):

The point comment #10 made about \[u2011] equally applies to \[u2018] (left
single quotation mark), \[u2019] (right single quotation mark), \[u201C] (left
double quotation mark), and \[u201D] (right double quotation mark), all common
characters that are frequently kerned next to certain uppercase letters.

I hate to take all these Unicode representations out of circulation until the
thornier underlying problems can be solved.  However, they were in no
previously released groff anyway, and at least with these four (unlike
\[u2011]), groff has decades-established local aliases (\[oq], \[cq], \[lq],
and \[rq]) that work correctly in all respects, so retaining the recently
added, incorrectly kerned variants is of dubious value.
