| What this doesn't do that HTML 3.0's CREDIT element does is to associate

Then perhaps you prefer this approach:

<blockquote cite="#source">
...
</blockquote>
<p>
  <cite id="source">David Smyth, Introduction to <span class="book"
  href="urn:ISBN:0-415-22614-7">Thai: An Essential Grammar</span></cite>
</p>

Arguably not quite preserving the true semantics of the cite attribute.
