Hey,

Just a thought... I do not know the HTML WG’s particular reasons for 
renaming q to quote, but my personal belief is that the reason for 
renaming it is to give the browsers a chance to start anew and implement 
the behavior of quote without being held back by compatibility concerns 
when changing the way q is rendered.

It is yet another indication that XHTML 2.0 is intended to be rendered 
by XHTML 1.0 user agents (which can only happen if it allows the XHTML 
1.0 namespace to be used).

This in addition to the existence of tags like <a> and <img> in XHTML 2.0.
