Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The b element represents a span of text to be stylistically offset
from the normal prose without conveying any extra importance, such as key words
in a document abstract, product names in a review, or other spans of text whose
typical typographic presentation is boldened. It's not just presentational, and
it is media-independent, which is what matters.
