As far as I know, using the single quote to force a spreadsheet to
treat numbers as strings is a feature, not a bug. Perhaps it would be
helpful to make such strings easier to find, but removing this feature
will probably cause problems for people who rely on it.
as a side note, strings are usually aligned on the left side while
numbers are aligned on the right per default.
There's a tool from "View -> Value Highlighting" that can highlight
numbers, strings, dates with different colours.
In any case this doesn't completely solve the problem when there's one
cell content mismatching the format in a much bigger formula.
MS Excel provides a visual warning on the cell with a different data
type than the rest included in the formula.
An approach like this is more visible and user friendly.
My 2 cents,
