I don't know what your use cases are, but I don't find myself passing
UI strings to syslog very often.
Surely your hypothetical case of syslog
(_("string_containing_normal_quotes")) is going to fail in the same
way if the translation has any utf8 in it.

Surely as programmers we can be trusted to know the difference between
the cases where a string is destined for the UI and where it is
destined for something that is non-UTF8 compatible?
