If you want to have this "double-italic", than simply write it in the 
style sheet of your site. For instance:

em em, em q, q q, q em {font-style:normal;}

Where's the problem?

Yes, that's imho a good idea and i would also like such a opportunity.

Thats's also a good idea... For example, if you could say:

a {base-color:green}

Or something like this...
