Hmm. Ok. I think you could probably argue use of q for the markup with 
the dir attribute in it, but I think that the text "Internationalization 
Activity, W3C" should probably just have quotes around it, since it's 
not quoting anything.

(See the HTML5 spec "The q element must not be used in place of 
quotation marks that do not represent quotes; for example, it is 
inappropriate to use the q element for marking up sarcastic statements.")
