When inside a string, mark-sexp should mark the string. IMO doesn't make sense 
to consider the contents then.

Example, cursor at beginning of docstring at "Just"

(defun foo1 ()
   "Just foo")

M-x mark-sexp RET marks word "Just", not the string.

Respectivly forward-sexp should reach the end of string, if called inside.
That would make it redundant with `up-list'.

Don't think so:

(list "asdfsdf adfsadf  " "asdfsd asd asdf " "asdfasf asdfsad ")

When started a "list", forward-sexp travels string by string, which is ok and also means, it recognises a string as sexp already.

Accordingly from inside a string, it should go to the end first.

As for the general suggestion, I personally like the current behavior.
For instance, in the following docstring, it's nice that forward-sexp
and kill-sexp work on `foo-bar' inside the string.

(defun ok ()
   "something `foo-bar' something")

Because a kill-symbol-at-point seems missing.
No reason to maintain a quirk :)
