Examples show p element inside blockquote element. But can a blockquote
element contained flowed content (i.e. no other element at all inside and just
plain text)? If it can, the specification should mention why it chooses the
former, and if it is a recommendation.

The content model seems to be adequately and precisely defined. Is it unclear?

The examples are just examples, there's not really any particular reason they were done one way or the other. If you have a good example of a blockquote that doesn't have multiple paragraphs, then let me know and I'll be happy to add it to the spec.
