[racket] `'unquote -- error or not?

Ciao a tutti,

When I type `'unquote in DrRacket, an error is thrown:

 > `'unquote
(X) unquote: expects exactly one expression in: (unquote)

I understand why this error occurs from the way quasiquote is expanded; 
see e.g. http://community.schemewiki.org/?scheme-faq-language#qqmacro (I 
guess DrRacket works similarly). Still, I feel the result should be just 
'unquote. What do you think?
