See the HDM under "root", page 652.  If you paste a musical
example into text, you are going to center it if it doesn't fill
the text width, and least if you have two columns you will.
Maybe it's better just to explain what \quote/
noquote does and why and leave it at that.  It certainly
doesn't bother me now that I understand it.  It's for quoting
substantial blocks of text, as an alternative to quotation
marks.  Similar to quoting lyrics or poetry, although that
wouldn't be justified.
If it is a serious inconvenience in doing the docs,
it's not worth it.
