If HTML5 keeps a striking out element (I have no strong opinion on  
this), it should be <s>, not <strike>.
Quote from <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html32>:

   Note: future revisions to HTML may be phase out STRIKE in favor
   of the more concise "S" tag from HTML 3.0.

HTML4 didn't this, since it deprecated both.
