Sourced, attributed, unsourced, and misattributed.[edit]

I'm trying to align Wikiquote:Sourced and Unsourced sections, Wikiquote:Sourcing, Wikiquote:Quotability#Verification_factor, and Wikiquote:Guide_to_layout#Sections_(people). Please comment on whether this is the correct Wikiquote classification and treatment of quotes:
(1) sourced to author's work (appears without qualification),
(2) sourced to reputable secondary publication but not to author's work (appears as "attributed" in article),
(3) generally attributed but not sourced to author's work or reputable secondary publication (appears as "unsourced" on discussion page), and
(4) generally attributed but sourced to another author (appears as "misattributed" in non-author's article). Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 16:07, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
