> 2. It would be useful in online editors, for things like choosing language-specific quote marks, language-specific digits, and inline directionality changes. Word uses this exact signal for two out of the three above; online editors should be able to do the same.

This sounds like a way to write very unreliable applications. Any heuristic based on current input source would fail when the input source doesn't provide such information - like input scripting or Character panel. In fact, I'm not sure if any OS X input sources provide language information.

Language specific quote marks and digits in particular would misbehave when using a U.S. English layout to type French (which is a perfectly normal and comfortable configuration).
