My apologies, I mis-interpreted your original posting.  However,
singling out one property for special treatment seems ill-advised
to me : whilst we might not be able to think at the moment why
one might want to selectively disable (say) underlining whilst
retaining all other text-decoration attributes, it is by no means
obvious that a perfectly valid reason for wishing to so do might
not emerge in the future.
