The CITE element doesn't require that the citation be explicitly
marked up, but there has to be a citation of some form for the CITE
element to be involved.

This is right:
<p>According to <cite>the Wikipedia article on HTML</cite>, HTML is
defined in formal specifications that were developed and published
throughout the 1990s.</p>

This is wrong:
<p>My favourite book is <cite>The Reality Dysfunction</cite> by
<cite>Peter F. Hamilton</cite>.</p>

The above examples are explicit examples that the specifications give
to help teach you right from wrong.
You will need to convince the working group that created the
specifications otherwise, before your desired use is to be considered
