It's, being a contraction of "it is", perhaps requires
an emacs lisp macro to expand it.  Resultant sentences such

.... a second order Taylor series about it is value at ....

would alert users as to improper use of the apostrophe,
as well as leaving the emacs buffer coloured appropriately,
a doubly useful side effect :)
