This makes sense. <q> is mistreated in existing browsers. The problem of
inserting quotation marks is too hard-- it should be left alone, at
least for now if not forever. <blockquote> is horribly abused by
authors. A new element with no hard-coded presentational elements
wouldn't have these problems.
