The current draft 
(http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#the-blockquote-element) 
doesn't have any recommendations regarding insertion of quotation punctuation
in the blockquote element. To be consistent with the proposal for the Q element
(bug #7490), I'd suggest:

[...] Content inside a blockquote must be quoted from another source, 
whose address, if it has one, should be cited in the cite attribute. 
[NEW]User agents MUST NOT insert quotation punctuation (such as 
quotation marks) into the rendering.[/NEW]

I'd appreciate if any people who are more experienced than me would 
shape this text into something that is suited to go into a draft.
