[Bug 13301] The u element represents "an unarticulated non-textual annotation." Are you serious? I think it would be good to give that one another try, this time in English. And is marking up Chinese names the only example you could find? It seems you want people

This should provide the background on the Working Group decision that led to
<u> becoming conforming:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Apr/0212.html

I supported that decision, but I can't provide good spec text either, because I
think <b>/<i>/<u>/etc. should all just be defined as presentational elements. 
So I'd just say "<u> is a shortcut for <span style=text-decoration:underline>",
but that's not consistent with the definitions for similar elements.
