I think they should be a special treatment for presentation-is- 
content (PIC). I'm barely now anything about namespace but it seems  
to be the direction to go.

Anyway, this also is another working group's issue

I wrote an article (in French) some years ago about how to know  
whether em or strong should be used.
Bottom line is

Imagine you are saying this to some people (like a teacher with  
students, for instance)
- if you increase the volume                 =>emphasis
- if you increase the volume *and* pause
just after                                   => strong emphasis
