 * component:  Administration => General
 * milestone:   => Future Release


 Looks like the milestone was removed on this one, so re-adding.

 Looks like there are 6 occurrences of `<cite>` in core itself today and 9
 occurrences across 5 default themes.

 4 tags are found within `wp-admin/includes` ''should'' be able to get
 changed without much ripple effect. The `<cite>` tags within
 `wp_widget_rss_output()`, `Walker_Comment::comment()`, and the default
 themes will be more difficult because they could cause display issues with
 themes or child themes for bundled themes.

 One way this could be addressed is by using the `html5` feature of
 `add_theme_support()`/`current_theme_supports()` to allow theme authors to
 opt into the switch. I don't love requiring themes to opt-in to the
 correct behavior, but another backwards compatible approach is not yet
 coming to mind.
