Let's say that link-source property applies only to
generated content. Then your technical concern will be addressed and 
in the same time basic functionality will be preserved

a[href]::outside 
	{link-source:attr(href)}
blockquote[cite]::before 
	{display:block;
	content:"Quoted from " attr(cite);
	link-source:attr(cite)}

> So now we're assigning semantics using CSS, basically?
No. Semantics is carried by markup (for instance cite attribute 
for blockquote element, we are just changing 
the way blockquote element is represented by UA).
