I agree with Murakami-san.

Even more, I started to wonder, maybe this could harm more than it helps. We might have discussed this before, but could you remind me what were the use cases of this definition?

One case that pops up in my mind where this definition could harm is:
  key { border:thin black solid; }
  <p>Press <key>X</key>.</p>
I suppose the period should hang.
