I agree with Mats. For the consonants (D, L, T) the Caron is too
confusable with a punctuation mark to keep those letters. I'd certainly
vote to remove them.
For the vowels I am undecided. Yes, the "thing" as Mats calls it, is at
half level and thus not quite at a location one would expect an
apostrophe or single quote. Still with some fonts it's not nearly as
attached as with others. If I were to decide, I'd probably vote for
keeping the vowels, but I wouldn't complain if a majority votes differently.
