I agree with Karl on the issue of broadening the use of <blockquote>
for indentation. The strength of having several block types is that
each block type has its special characteristics: Indentation, font
type inheritance/replacement, preformatting, font size. Maintaining
this flexibility with wider use of the <blockquote> would necessarily
mean deeper <div><style><span> nesting which could get complex.

Why?  No need to add a <div> - just emit a <blockquote>, with an optional
class=... attribute when we want to distinguish the kinds of <blockquote>.
