good idea but not sure about quantity semantics :)

which make me things that there's a whole section of the Web which is 
not covered.

We have XHTML
		MathML

but we don't have semantics for Physics, Geography (GeoML exists), etc. 
and it's why I think namespaces are sometimes a solution if we knew how 
to implement them easily and validate them.

For text, we need a good and consistent data model to replace elements 
q, blockquote, cite and attributes cite for:

	citation
	book references
	authors
	etc.
