What's the expected payoff if the message is made well-known?

In that case, I suggest making the content models for <b> and <i>  
equally versatile as the content models for <strong> and <em>.  
Otherwise, authors and tool vendors will go with the elements with  
the more versatile content models just in case the versatility is  
ever needed.
