I didn't read Robert's message as him suggesting it, just saying what he 
thought Julian asked for.

My preference is <span> instead of <em> because we don't know if the 
default desire is to see things as having visual format or to see it as 
they do today. People who don't want visual format will need to redefine 
<em> for this class, which seem onerous.
