I would leave it to the discretion of the developer what notation he
prefers. If he prefers backticks and knows about the problems which
could be present, it is ok for me.

I was using backticks, and thanks to Florent's comments (similar to
yours) I have switched to use $(...), but as I said, this is up to the
discretion of the developer.

Best wishes
