As for the divs, you are right. As for the paragraphs inside
blockquotes, I'm afraid you're wrong, at least considering XHTML 1.1. 

Please have a look at the code at http://pastebin.ca/376807 and try to
validate it through http://validator.w3.org -- you will see, that the
paragraphs are actually required.
