I think that several classes would work also. Example:

     {: .small .bold }
     > Some Quote

would be output to:

     \begin{small}
     \begin{bold}
     Some Quote
     \end{bold}
     \end{small}

But if that is too complicated, only the first class attribute could 
be used.

Sounds very reasonable!
