[Bug 13301] The u element represents "an unarticulated non-textual annotation." Are you serious? I think it would be good to give that one another try, this time in English. And is marking up Chinese names the only example you could find? It seems you want people

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the Editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the Tracker Issue; or you may create a Tracker Issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Additional Information Needed
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

Could you suggest better text to describe the element?  It would be pretty hard
for the editor to address this comment unless you're more specific.  You've
pointed out things that you find problematic, but haven't suggested any better
replacements.

Note that the spec formerly didn't permit <u>, and the editor was forced to add
it despite the fact that he thinks it serves no legitimate purpose and
shouldn't be part of the language.  It's hard to write good spec text under
those conditions.
