Since the content model of P includes Q but the content model of Q does not
include P, that is not a problem ;-)

Since you are talking of quoted material arranged in paragraphs, blockquote
would be appropriate.

A stylesheet could arrange for an open quote to be applied before each
blockquote and a close quote to be appended to the last one (in CSS,
using a special class to identify the last blockquote of that quoted
section. Or you could surround the section with a div and generate the
closing quote on that.
