It's a bad idea, sure. But it doesn't follow that <q> in itself is a  
good idea and needs changing.

My conclusion is that adding quotes is a bad idea *and* <q> in itself  
isn't particularly useful. Thus, the solution is not to use <q> in  
newly-authored documents.

Hixie, maybe <q> should be obsolete but conforming...
