Would it muddy the waters to suggest the ! alias? Using the ! in place of
quote helped me to underestand what is happening bettter.
! syst
should work just fine.  

I think of the ! as being "pay attention! Here's one of your own commands!"

Why is that odd? That just means that it's implemented in your particular
FTP client.
In mine I can do "site namefmt 1" without typing "quote" as well, but on a
Windows client that doesn't work. Once you understand what the QUOTE
command does, it's not a big mystery.
I recently explained on this thread what quote does, but apparently I
didn't explain it very well, because it appears that nobody understood
what I said.
