Same old story about accessibility. Classes mean nothing unless styled,  
and they are usually styled only for the particular media the author is  
targetting. What should a voice UA do about these classes, for example?  
With <ins> and <del>, it could apply some default styling in absence of  
applicable author-specified styling, but with classes this information is  
inaccessible for a blind user.
