[whatwg] <blockquote cite> and <q cite>

I saw a recent draft introduced semantics for <blockquote> being followed  
or preceded by a <p> which contains <cite> and for <q> which is inside a  
paragraph which also contains a <cite>. Perhaps this <cite> element can  
contain a single element <a> which contains the source of the quote?

So we can drop the unsupported cite="" attribute from both <blockquote>  
and <q> or at least provide a way to have visual metadata. (I'm aware  
cite="" is exposed in some way in some user agents, but that's not really  
usable in any way...)
