So what are you going to do about “it’s”? The one that requires an apostrophe because its a contraction?

For sake of consistency, this would imply having to change the entire paradigm of possessive pronouns, such as my, his, hers, your and their which all have the possessive part inside the word. Since the meaning is inseparable as a morphological unit, they would all change into me’s, him’s, her’s, you’s and them’s. It would complicate things because nobody at the board of English language wants a new reform that would be inconsistent as well.
