You are completely right. That is why a mailing list like this is useful.

Wrong is maybe not the correct word, but when compiling this code:
    \starttext
    ` Backtick\crlf
    ' Apostrophe\crlf
    ‘ Open curly quote\crlf
    ’ Close curly quote

    ‘some quoted text’

    “some doublequoted text”

    \setupbodyfont[palatino,rm,12pt]

    ‘some quoted text’

    “some doublequoted text”

    \stoptext

Then I find the font from palatino better looking, but the default quotes
better as the palatino's.

I have to change all my ‘quotes’ again.

Attached my Xmopdmap.extra which incorperates these single and double
quotes.
