blockquote and quotation in XHTML 2.0

The blockquote is defined in
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml2/mod- 
structural.html#edef_structural_blockquote

Right now, in XHTML 1.0, I defined my quotation with this kind of  
markup.

************
<blockquote class="citation" xml:lang="fr" cite="urn:isbn: 
2-7467-0454-4">

     <p>La ville est une fleur vénéneuse qui
     s'évanouit en brillant de mille feux,
     pleine de folie et vide de sens.</p>

<p>
     <cite class="dc:title">La Chambre de l'amant</cite> -
     <cite class="dc:author">Wei Hui</cite>
</p>
</blockquote>
*************


We could also have something like…



*************
<p>In her book, <cite class="dc:title">La Chambre de l'amant</cite>,  
the chinese writer <cite class="dc:author">Wei Hui</cite> has a  
beautiful sentence:</p>

<blockquote class="citation" xml:lang="fr" cite="urn:isbn: 
2-7467-0454-4">
     <p>La ville est une fleur vénéneuse qui
     s'évanouit en brillant de mille feux,
     pleine de folie et vide de sens.</p>
</blockquote>
**************


Question:
What would be the way to define this in XHTML 2.0 establishing a  
meaningful relationship between the quote, the author, the title, and  
the reference? (RDF/A wise)
