Wikinews and English Wikipedia advice against typographic quotation marks
simply because users can’t be expected to enter them correctly and
consistently. A smart quotes feature would eliminate that concern.

There are, however, also people who actually like straight quotes better, but
that also depends on the font – they might be okaish with some sans serif
typefaces (as in the standard skin Monobook), but they are always ugly with
serif faces.

A " or ' surrounded by whitespace (or punctuation) on both sides should
probably not be converted.

The extension should be language-aware.
