Kent, thanks for the work you did. Can you separate out more of the reasons you had, eg

:lang(af) { quotes: '\201c' '\201d' '\2018' '\201d'; } /* “ ” ‘ ” */ this one is surely very wrong
The reason is that there is an obvious mismatch between elements of a pair.

:lang(zu) { quotes: '\2018' '\2019' '\201c' '\201d'; } /* ‘ ’ “ ” */ this one is surely wrong
Guessing that you think this is linguistically wrong?

Curly quotes in bidi languages are often a problem, especially for text that does not match the paragraph direction, or text of different directions on either side of a quote. To address these problems (and unless a better way of handling this developed with the UBA) the simplest of best practice is probably to use straight quotes for ar, he, etc.

There is a related report from Richard Ishida, that should be looked at in the same context.

There was then a report from Mati:
