Are the quills confirmed for Triceratops?

Here's something: There have been found a Triceratops fossil with skin impressions.
This Triceratops sp. "Lane" was found at the Zerbst ranch in Wyoming. Among this impressions are structures which may have been quills or protofeathers (yes, no prove but a reference point).
Alltough Nima's reconstruction is very speculative, I agree with you about the limited size of such attachments.

As I know no. But it seems to be an basal attribute of Marginocephalia or maybe even Cerapoda (I think mostly of Tianyulong and Psittacosaurus)
