Peter, 

The current quoted-text convention might be useful if the developer is the one putting in the quotes. You use quotes instead of underscores. If you wanted a paragraph of musician names you add Madonna, Prince, "Bruce Springsteen" and Willie -- word 3 now refers to the Boss.

If you are munging other people's text then it becomes inconvenient.
