I think a problem with this approach is that the 1px letter spacing
will also be applied to English, and probably other scripts. If we
have a mixed Chinese-Arabic page (not inconceivable in some parts of
China, or right here in Toronto, Canada) I don't know what will happen
to the Arabic.

But if even this will only be in the future I agree that it's better
to have special provisions for underlines. Part of the problem is
probably because underlines are called "decoration".
