I think, for a part of people in this thread another comparison is more 
appropriate. Bike handlebars are quite specialized and each type of bike 
has its own shape to be more convenient. And steering wheel is more 
suitable when wider range of angles is required. Choices of characters 
to denote code snippets are quite arbitrary. Imagine that you have to 
drive at the right lane while you are around the office. But as soon as 
you cross the river on your everyday trip to home, you have to stick to 
the left side of the road... There is no apparent advantage or defect of 
any of these rules. The mix is rather dangerous.

"Emacs everywhere" suggested in another message could be a rescue in 
some cases. Unless original formatting is already broken by another 
external tool.

Customization becames a pain when communication is involved.

OK, what might be a reason why org does not use backticks is that 
backticks around lisp expressions could be confusing.
