Um, isn't that what <q> is all about?  Or am I missing something?
I thought the issue on the table was the fact that the spec defines the
following: "Visual user agents must ensure that the content of the Q
element is rendered with delimiting quotation marks."
The problem arises with UAs which don't understand <q>, and leaves out
the quotation marks. This results in the loss of the information that
the element content was a quote.
