Oh, do we have `auto`? That could be a game changer, though, if that 
can provide a decent default behavior everywhere.

However, the problem may still be valid. If author decides to use a 
different value for underline, they would effectively need to specify 
the value everywhere when there is a `text-decoration-line` presents, 
otherwise they may get undesired broken line-through, or undesired 
non-broken underline (considering `<u>some thing important 
<del>deleted</del></u>` and `<del>deleted <u>something was 

If that is something we want, then `text-decoration-skip` should 
probably not be inherited by default, and should be part of 
`text-decoration` shorthand.

I have no idea why `text-decoration-skip` is inherited currently, 
though. @kojiishi thoughts?
