I'd prefer to see the objective stated before a particular means to
achieve it.  I.e. not "backticks around options and commands", but
"literal examples (e.g. use of command line options, command names
and configuration variables) are typeset monospaced, and if you can
use `backticks around word phrase`, do so.".

I think it is wrong to single out "options or commands" here, and
also it is wrong to say "unescaped".  The "unescaped" is merely a
consequence of combination between:


    Word phrases `enclosed in backtick characters` (grave accents)
    are also rendered in a monospaced font but in this case the
    enclosed text is rendered literally and is not subject to
    further expansion.

and the use of `backticks` to achieve "literal examples are typeset
monospaced" rule.

If some place in the documentation needs to typeset a command use
example with inline substitutions, it is fine to use +monospaced and
inline substituted text+ instead of `monospaced literal text`, and
with the former, we do need to quote the part we do not want to get
