There is however no "author" value for <strong>. With your argument,  
<STRONG> would have no effect at all, if a user sets

  P { font-weight: normal }

as this is inherited every time. I think the only useful implementation  
is to assume default values (i.e. bolder) for <STRONG> in this case, as  
there's no user/reader value given for <STRONG>.
