I believe that overloading <t> is the wrong approach. It's a bit similar
to using spanx/div for everything in HTML, and to delegate styling to CSS.
For quotes, it introduces a new "cite" attribute, but this way the
grammar allows a set of conflicting attributes (cite, hangText, ...)
that are meaningless when combined.
Furthermore, quotes (and notes) can be multi-paragraph, thus should
contain <t> elements.
- add <blockquote> (with @cite), holding block level elements
- add <note>, holding block level elements
We also should check existing XML sources for uses of unstyled lists in
order to find what else it's used for.

Just like in HTML: <http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/text.html#adef-cite-Q>
