I didn't think about it actually :) I needed it when I was developing
one of XEP-277 transports, the markup of the legacy system supports the
[s] bb code, so I need it too.

But deeper my point is that as far as we support xhtml:strong, em, and
so on, we should support del/ins too just to be consistent: I can
outline some text with strong or em and the client will be able to style
the text according to user preferences but here the only option is to
use CSS style hardcoded.

Sorry, if my statement is not clear :)
