 Please keep your responses on list so you can get a quick reply even
when I'm otherwise busy.

I think you could -- for a rough and ready comparison -- compare
against a constant (empirical quantile) model (not unlike how basic
OLS models compare against the constant mean predictor)  but someone
else might know if there's any subtleties about quantile regression
that should be noted here.
