In and of itself, yes it is constructive. The "German" quotation mark style is not used in any version of English that I know of. However, it's not a substantive edit. If there are other formatting issues, then go ahead and make the edit, including the quotes. If that's the only issue, it's not worth it.

I'd like to suggest a change to the CSS to make nested quotes more distinguishable: blockquote { border: 1px dotted rgba(151,151,151,0.43); background: linear-gradient(rgba(248, 237, 218, 0.5),rgba(248, 237, 218, 0.5)); } Currently, the border is only specified for the top and bottom, but it's more obvious if it surrounds the quote. It helps to ...

I agree. I was just editing a question like this, and while I think the current embedded block quotes look better than code blocks, they are very subtle and could benefit from being made more obvious. Italicization only works for example sentences. It can't always be used (for example, it looks bad in extended quote blocks), so it is not a general solution....
