I agree.

Well, we are all agree to say that the <q> tag describes a quotation. In 
this way, it is very usefull.

The problem is with the quote style.
Maybe the “best” way to work is that UA do not print quotes (with :after 
or :before classes, and content property), and only user overwrites this 
property with his own CSS. Or a secondary solution is that user writes 
quotes himself in the content and let the CSS to default (i.e. no quotes 
are printed).

This is not a HTML problem but a CSS problem I think (or content problem).
