Ok, must admit I'd not thought of it being used like so.
I'm far more used to the html application, i.e. as a standalone
inline element (hence I was supportive of the original question,
where's the 'expansion' attribute).

Now I'm a little confused.

<quote src='tdg'>An abbreviation, especially one followed by a period. </quote>

Applicable in both contexts?

I think I'd like the optional attribute which shows an expanded form though.
