I fully appreciate the requirement for change bars and redlining
set forth by T Bruce, and I agree that this is certainly needed
and imporant. But I must respectfully disagree with his specific
proposal for how to meet this need. He suggested adding a new form
of emphasis <em strikeout>.

In my opinion, the example Bruce provides is as good an example of
the value of semantic tagging as one could hope for. With a semantic
tag, one document could contain both the old and the new versions
of edited passages (or you could have tagged links to the old, whatever).
