That is becaues you define the word "benefit" in your own way and refuse
to accept that where you only see needless "goofiness", others actually
see benefit.

As for the topic of the discussion, Unicode is gradually replacing
ASCII, and that will mean more and more people using typographic quotes.
And more and more hoops to jump through for people that prefer to stick
to older software that doesn't properly implement unicode.
