I think you're right, and I'll try to prepare a patch for LuaTeX to
1. remove the special treatment of quotes in file names,
2. have \jobname expand to catcode-12-only tokens, as David suggested,
3. have the to-be-deprecated syntax without braces require a catcode-10 token to stop the scan.
I think this could solve most of the issues.
BTW, this problem has already been discussed on the AucTeX side , apparently without a fix so far.
