Ok, let's try to summary possible options to solve 
`<u>aaa<del>bbb</del></u>'.

1. **Not to fix.** Just heard from a Latin native that skipping ink 
for strikethrough is quite natural. I don't have a good sense to 
assert this as a non-native, if we can reach consensus that this is a 
common understanding and commonly seen typographic tradition, this may
 not be an issue.
2. **Change `text-decoration-skip` to non-inherited, propagated 
property.** This has pros/cons as in [comment 
above](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/711#issuecomment-261460533).
3. **Change `text-decoration-skip: ink` only applicable to 
underlines/overlines.** drott@ commented this will limit when authors 
want to skip-ink strikethrough. WebKit does this in its prefixed 
`-webkit-text-decoration-skip`.
4. **A separate property for skip ink.** We can then make it to 
propagate, or have values for each line types. Blink/WebKit doesn't 
implement propagation well yet, so relying on propagation isn't easy 
at this moment.

Did I list all what were discussed?
