Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

If we introduced <u> with the semantic "proper name mark", it would just be
used incorrectly by everyone. So doing that would be bad. If this is a use case
that we should address, then we're better off introducing a new element for it.

I can't find another reason to have <u> (I've thought about this quite a bit).
It really does seem to be purely presentational; far more than even <small>,
<b>, <i>, and <s>.
