Thanks.

I cannot apply it on top of master however. On what commit did you base
it?

There are also some nits, but I can fix them when applying your patch.

This is not related to your patch (it can be encountered elsewhere), but
the index entry above is too generic to be useful. Maybe 

  #+cindex: @samp{ATTR_LATEX}, in quote blocks

would be better.

> +#+cindex: org-latex-default-quote-environment

This should be #+vindex: ...

> +The LaTeX export back-end accepts two attributes for quote blocks:

~org-latex-default-quote-environment~ and ~"quote"~ since they both
refer to Lisp code, not Org syntax.

Note that you can currently write, perhaps more elegantly,

  #+begin_quotation
  some text...
  #+end_quotation

> +,#+END_QUOTE
> +#+end_example

I don't know if this example is a good illustration because you can
currently achieve the same with:

  #+attr_latex: :options {german}
  #+begin_foreigndisplayquote
  some text in German...
  #+end_foreigndisplayquote

Are there use cases that would be better than using special blocks as in
the example above?
