> I'm not suggesting we replace <i> for <name> either but maybe we should
think of ways to break apart <i> so that it's no longer necessary to a point
of deprecation.

We may still need a generic italicizing method though.

For example I'm often using foreign-language locutions, and since I'm trying
to avoid <i>, I've come used to using <span class="locution" lang="">, but
eventually it feels clumsy and I'm becoming prone to using <i lang="">.

So, either we have tags for every kind of semantic-oriented use of <i>,
which I seriously doubt, or we have to keep it for a long, very long time.
