In Firefox blockquote and q mapping are mapped to string role on MSAA (i.e.
blockquote and q) are exposed.

Firefox maps them into IA2_ROLE_SECTION/ATK_ROLE_SECTION for blockquote and
IA2_ROLE_TEXT_FRAME/ATK_ROLE_TEXT for q. But Neither IA2 nor ATK provides a way
to expose semantics of these elements. To fill this gap I'd suggest to expose
xml-roles:quote object attribute.

Also these elements have @cite attribute. Spec says

"If the cite attribute is present, it must be a valid URL potentially
surrounded by spaces. To obtain the corresponding citation link, the value of
the attribute must be resolved relative to the element. User agents should
allow users to follow such citation links."

The suggestion is to expose "showlongdesc" action as Firefox does for
img@longdesc (see Mozilla bug
