Just to clarify -- I was absolutely not suggesting that we have a  
class pre-defined for quotes in any way or that we define any class  
name.

In my example, the way that we know that the paragraph is a quote is  
that it has a cite attribute -- making it a paragraph that cites an  
outside source. That was actually my suggestion -- that changing  
quotation tag names to the use of a cite attribute (or combinations  
of attributes that adequately create a citation) on other existing  
tags makes more sense.

It could have had any class... or no class. That part was irrelevant  
and would be up the the author as it is today.
