Isn't that what <cite> is for?

I'd like to see <file> though, and XHTML 2.0's <blockcode>, <section>
and <h>.

And <quote> is in XHTML 2.0 as well. I don't see any objections against it.

Actually, I'd rather just see XHTML 2.0 -_-;; (or an HTML 5.0 which has
the same syntax). Why re-invent the wheel.
