Why is it that you have to quote ^ every time? Is it your shell?

We raised this issue when the character was being chosen, and concluded
that it would not need to be quoted. Were we wrong for certain shells?
We knew about caret substitution, but I thought that only happened when
the caret is either appended the end of the line [1], or when there are
multiple carets [2], and that therefore it would not be a problem for
our usage. Were we wrong?
