I believe the convention for including punctuation within quotations was more of an acquiescence to typographical necessity rather than a grammatical choice. Apparently in old mechanical fixed type it was more aethetically pleasing to put punctuation before closing quotes.
In the age of modern typography it seems obvious to me that logical quoting should be accepted as the new standard.
