I can think of two offhand...

- first is an example feed when talking about mfs... which i admit  
coud be rare
- something like my versionhistory mini-feeds[1][2], though I've used  
them on non-blog pages, might be a more common scenario for those  
that keep similar content in blog posts[3] or forum posts [4]

That said, I'm not sure the blockquote rule applies without seeing  
rules for parsing order and what takes precedent... I'd still think  
in the scenario I posted that the outer feed would never be a  
microformat for that rule to apply.
