i am aware of this, but SRC is an abbreviation for "source" which is 
a more appropriate descriptor of the target document containing the 
source of the quote.

i wholeheartedly agree that we don't want to break compatibility, 
but i don't think that sacrificing logic for compatibility's sake 
is a wise idea either; if something is broken, then fix it, and 
to my mind's eye, Q as presently defined, is broken, and needs to 
be fixed, with the side-benifit that it brings the technical 
recommendation into harmony with itself.
