The point is that U is not presentatioal in the Chinese language. It is not
manuscript styling, but a full-fledged punctuation mark ("first-class citizen"
if you prefer that wording). It is in the same class as the comma, period,
colon, dashes, hyphens, and quotation marks.

The English punctuation marks are also derived from manuscript styling. Are we
going to deprecate and eventually obsolete them too, and replace them with new
HTML elements that describe sentence structure? I find this argument very
unconvincing.
