Use of <cite> Quotations with citation

I am wondering about the use of <cite>in the following cases.=20
1) Would it be a failure/bad practise if <cite>is dropped from quotation =
with explicit citation?
For example not coding <cite>in <blockquote> example 2 in http://www.w3.org=
/TR/2013/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20130905/G115.html. Sometimes, it is difficult =
to decide the source and other time the source is refereed to multiple =
times in one or more paragraphs or along one page.
2) Why Hillary is not coded using <cite> in the last example on http://www.=
t ?
<p><q>This is correct</q>, said Hillary.</p>
Thank you,
