I agree that <q/> is special, but in its case the quotes are generated by  
the browser without specifying so in the CSS (double- and single- quotes).  
They should be copyable because they are part of the content; without the  
quotes the text will be misinterpretable.

They do in the case of <ul/>, <ol/>, and <q/> elements -- if that's what  
you were pointing to.
