The CSS Working Group just discussed `Limits on text-underline-offset to preserve semantic meaning`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: No limit. If past what the UA can render it's clipped`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: Limits on text-underline-offset to preserve semantic meaning<br>
&lt;dael> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4059<br>
&lt;dael> myles: Apple delegation has done internal soul searching and we're now comfortable with no limit solution. No clamping<br>
&lt;bradk> Yay!<br>
&lt;florian> yay<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Is that only thing we wanted to resolve?<br>
&lt;jensimmons> Excellent!<br>
&lt;dael> myles: I believe that's the only topic of conversation<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: There's going to be a limit because UA has limit of what it can do. If the spec size is greater then that should underline be clipped or clamped?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Let's say limit is 5 pages long. Author expects underline on 6th page. Is the underline on the 5th page or not rendered?<br>
&lt;dael> myles: Match text shadow which I believe is clipping<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Makes sense. If you get > a couple pages clamping gets you unexpected lines<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: I think if it's >a few lines it's confusing so clipping is fine<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Prop: no limit. If passed what UA can render it's clipped<br>
&lt;florian> +1<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Okay.<br>
&lt;fantasai> s/passed/past/<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: I'm the biggest non-fan but won't object<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Any objections or comments or can we resolve?<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Objections?<br>
&lt;fantasai> s/lines/lines, which might overpaint something unexpected/<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: No limit. If past what the UA can render it's clipped<br>
