I'm also concerned about performance here; I worry that any browser
implementing the rules in that turn
this "may consider" into a "must consider" will end up becoming too
slow on pages that use text decorations on large spans of text
(e.g., a long page that underlines the whole body); I think it's
entirely possible that the performance regression will be severe
enough that the whole thing will end up unimplemented.  (I certainly
wouldn't encourage a developer to spend time trying to implement it,
because I don't see it ending well, and I think we have bigger
problems to solve.)
