The problem is that many Arabic letters descend below the base line in
 various ways, so a too high underline (like what Safari or Chrome 
draw currently) will end up too fragmented and looking ugly, the 
underline fragments can even get too small that they can be confused 
for dots or vowel marks. This is clearly seen in the Arabic part of 
the screenshot in 
(it looks a bit better since the underline is in a different color, 
but a black underline will be much worse). I think the conclusion for 
CJK in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/707 pretty much 
applies to Arabic, though for slightly different reasons.
