Intermittent channels are always encoded explicitly, i.e. the
qualifiers ' and " are not allowed.

.. and there's no point in using the <!> qualifier, either, as it is implied.

So just don't allow qualifiers in intermittent channels, period.  Saves one
representation ambiguity for the interpreting application to have to code for.

PS: editorial: use angle brackets to set off quotes where you would have
used quotes to make it clear that you are referencing the character
as a token.  In other words,

Intermittent channels are always encoded explicitly, i.e. the
qualifiers < '> and <"> are not allowed.

.. but you're not going to need to call them out individually, here, once
you fix it.
