No, that's correct, you've got to go Unicode all the way, i.e. replace 
`' by ‘’ and ``'' by “”, and \"a by ä, --- by —, etc. The good side of 
it is that TeX becomes more Mac-friendly, the bad side is that you 
loose compatibility with TeX on other platforms, so that collaborative 
work may become problematic.

A more detailed answer to practically the same question, that I had 
asked a few days ago on the XeTeX mailing list, was provided by XeTeX's 
developer <http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2004-June/000360.html>. (AAT 
= Apple Advanced Typography; OT = OpenType. Hoefler Text is an AAT 
font, I think.)

Glad it helped!
