I'd like to suggest a different strategy for <q>.  I'm not comfortable with a strategy that directly says you must break the only required rendering rule in HTML4.01 in order to be compliant with HTML5.  I believe we should pick one of the following options: 1) it should either be removed, 2) required to quote, knowing there are nesting/locale problems, 3) required to quote unless the immediately contained characters are quote characters, allowing locale-specific or nesting-specific author choice, 4) nest automatically with an attribute to control quoting, or 5) (my least favorite option) leave it ambiguous.
