I had originally suggested something similar to this back in June 06. (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html/2006Jun/0034.html) There have also been a few other suggestions regarding this topic. I suggest searching the archive. Most questions you have, have probably alreay been asked and answered.

However, I'd argue that the "strength" in this case influences the 
meaning/content, hence should be part of the document's markup, and not 
rely on styling alone. It would also be a lot more elegant than 
requiring nesting to achieve positive increments, and gives an 
interesting way out for removing  (presentational) without the 
need to reinvent another element for this purpose.
