As I already said many times in the past, I think b/i/u should be
preserved for annotating visually a document with specific elements than
can trivially be detected and removed.

1. right, they're not semantic elements. So they're PERFECT to annotate
    a document w/o adding semantic information to the document.

2. on the contrary, it's impossible to say 'a priori' if a
    <span style="text-decoration: underline"> is important for the
    document or is only here to underline some text.
