You want
  :lang(en) > q { quotes: '“' '”' '‘' '’'; }

I believe the second rule (q q) is unnecessary... but I could be wrong. What
was it indended to accomplish? Also, the current behavior of CSS quotes is to
repeat the last pair. Is that correct behavior, or should it be cycling?

Wrt tracking CLDR updates, hixie, I agree with the i18n folks that you should
put that normatively in the spec. The CSS should effectively be a transform of
the CLDR data, and should be defined as such so that implementations understand
they should (ideally) track that data and that the CSS syntax is provided as a
convenience. If the HTML spec gets out of sync, the CLDR should be the one to
follow.
