Maybe I've figured out the problem. It seems that some list parameters
(inside self-defined, modified quote/enumerate environments, but it's true
for itemize too) like \leftmargin or \rightmargin have no effect at all!

I discovered that one has to define something like

\DeclareInstance{justification}{QuoteB}{std}%
{
leftskip=13dd,
rightskip=0dd,
}

and use it inside the environment definition, but it stops working in list
environments with labels ...
