Again I can not agree with last sentence of Khaled here as I don't see
 the situation same with rectangle like letters of CJK and I also 
don't think keeping the underline unchanged is equally bad or is not 
helpful. I hope others Arabic/Persian speakers comments would shed 
some light on this but I am just bringing Khaled's mentioned text on 
both `skip: ink` and without for their judge:

To me, this is not very different than real world English `skip: ink`s
 ([link](https://youtu.be/OQ5jsbhAv_M?t=1955)) but maybe is just a new
 looking thing for Arabic text (which I believe on a better 
direction):

Some other interesting to know facts, currently Arabic Wikipedia is 
totally disabled links hover underline for some reason but as their 
decision was affected Persian Wikipedia, we had to revert their change
 on [Persian Wikipedia](https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/75570/) 
(there is a false fact about Amiri on the commit message, please 
ignore) as it was causing UI/UX inconsistency, and, Central Kurdish 
Wikipedia also was interested on our change so I [applied 
that](https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/99701/) for them also. Also 
some Persian news agency websites like [Tabnak](http://tabnak.ir/) had
 disabled links underline and I believe if they asked about the 
reason, they would mention dots legibility issue with underline as one
 the reason (if not top) so current situation with underline on Arabic
 is it self not great (I don't like here to be accused of implying 
that `skip: ink` is making it better, even the fact, I believe it 
doesn't making the situation worse if not making it better)

After all,
