 > Honestly, I'd like to see `<del>` and `<ins>` removed from both
 quicktags and TinyMCE by default. This probably needs some user feedback,
 but my gut feeling is that most users never use them at all, and most of
 those who do use them incorrectly. I'd rather have `<s>` for
 strikethrough, and leave the semantic use cases for more knowledgeable

 obviously change my view, but I don't really think that they belong in the
 default set of editing tools.

 I wonder if we could get any usage stats from wp.com, though that kind of
 falls of scope of this tick. For now, I'd encourage adding the aria-label
 attributes to everything we've got now.
