In general I agree, but there are some cases where I prefer not to
input the real char. -- and --- are such cases. Even if – and —
where easier to input on my keyboard: I have difficulties to
distinguish -, – and — in my editor(s). 

Btw: I think this type of "fake ligatures" (-- to –) could be used
for the translation discussed here. One would naturally have to
enable ^ in text mode (along the way _ is enable with
underscore.sty). The translation could then be enabled by font
