in xpath1 it is impossible to have a string literal with both quotes.

that's not much hardship in xslt2 as, as you say, you can use
<xsl:variable name="x">'"'"'"</xsl:variable>
form but it does cause inconvience in other contexts,

xpath2 allows you to quote the character used to delimit the string by
doubling it so you can have a string literal such as
which is the two character string '"
