Consider that "blah blah blah" is a long passage maybe containing a
couple of paragraphs. Anyway, it's a generalizable issue that affects a
lot of TEI-to-HTML translation. The <address> tag, for example (which
Sebastian's stylesheets turn into <blockquote>), which is the particular
tag I was working with in a stylesheet before I posted the note.

There are places where that cheat would have serious consequences. For
example, in a legal document with numbered paragraphs, where the
paragraph clearly surrounded the embedded quotation. Splitting it up
would be illegal in maybe more than one sense.
