I agree that positioning the underline correctly should help the arabic case significantly, although we should probably also check whether interference with vowel diacritics could lead to similar issues (maybe not), since they may occur in the line of fire even if we avoid the dots. 

But i'm also concerned that there may be similar, albeit perhaps not so dramatic, issues for other scripts, such as Thai or or scripts such as Myanmar or Khmer, that stack consonants with potentially only small intervening spaces between the ink below the line.  I think this needs some more research.

We may not actually need a `min-underline-ink-width` property – one possible approach may be to just say something like that underline ink should never be less than two or three times the width of the underline's height. (Just an idea.)
