Why would they be impossible to format without using <blockquote>?
I'm confused.

If they are block quotations, then they should be marked up using
<blockquote>.  If they are not, then they should not be marked up
using <blockquote>.

If you need to, say, indent sections of text, then you should use
Cascading Style Sheets to produce that indentation effect.

The <pre> tag really should be avoided in most cases.
