Either way, I do not mind. 
my personal preference: strong is enough.

<strike title="this text is striked for reason x">blabla</strike>

Not sure I understand the question. 
It depends on how you design the language. Is strike permitted in the language?

1. If strike element is forbidden/obsolete in the html language.
   Not allowed
2. If strike element is authorized but as the Web site publisher/developer, we think the element is not appropriate in the context of the input form.
   Not allowed
