I think a lot of people would dislike writing all their strings in backticks as well. It may not even be that easy to type on some keyboard layouts; outside of coding, it's a pretty obscure character. A prefix syntax also has the advantage that you can still have u'strong' and u"weak" variants, and it has precedent in other languages, whereas `foo` has a strong association with code (Perl, Markdown come to mind).
