I would tentatively say that it doesn't make sense for line through 
(strikeout). The reason is that it is not so much a decoration as a 
visible deletion. Deferring to the "ink" makes less logical sense.

For overline, I can imagine scenarios where it might obliterate parts 
of a character (diacritics), perhaps even a diacritic that is itself a
 line (macron above some other diacritic). That could alter the sense 
of the text, so being able to skip the ink would make sense.
