When you say "I'd rather nest t/blockquote elements than indicate indentation as an attribute", do you mean that you want <blockquote> to be automatically indented and someone cannot use an attribute on <t> to indicate indentation? If so, wouldn't that cause people who want to indent a paragraph like a note to mis-use <blockquote>? Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying about what you want from <t>?
