In a recent wishful discussion of dynamic time series models features
for a blockbuster Stata 12, people have been throwing references to
technical literature. Can you point to one that derives a bootstrap
procedure that would produce consistent standard errors for quantile
regression? Until such a paper appears in JASA/Econometrica/Journal of
Econometrics (CJS is also a possibility; I might have reservations
about TAS), clustered bootstrap in quantile regression, although
probably feasible via a combination of -bsweights-/-bs4rw-/-sqreg-,
essentially rests on hand-waving and computing tricks rather than
solid theory. If somebody stomps your paper because you did not use
the right procedure, that's your academic reputation to gamble with.

May be Austin Nichols or Steve Samuels think otherwise, and do know
such references, in which case you'd want to listen to them :).
