The issue is exactly about the awkward inline/block definition

which leads to create double elements

* code/blockcode
* q/blockquote

If we didn't have the content compatibility constraints, I would  
remove the nature of block/inline to elements like address, cite, q,  
code, etc. Unfortunately…
