Hello Alan, I am not sure if you are still interested in this issue
but I did not see any continuation of this discussion so wasn't aware
if you or others were aware of the outcome.

In Texinfo 7.0 onward, there is a new variable ASCII_PUNCTUATION
(used like 'texi2any -c ASCII_PUNCTUATION=1') which uses ASCII output
in preference to non-ASCII UTF-8 in several contexts: the output
of commands like @samp, the output of ', '', `, ``, -, -- and ---
in output files, and the output of some glpyh commands like @bullet{}.

Currently we are discussing on bug-texinfo changing some defaults
for the output and adding some configuration variables for more
fine-grained control of the output.

Currently, I expect that ASCII_PUNCTUATION will carry on doing what
it does already.
