I think it would be difficult to find some syntax that's more
comprehensible than doing <s>inline html markup</s> for strikethrough.

*emphasis* is one thing, because there's a long tradition of using
underscores and stars for emphasis, but there's not anything there
except for ^H and ^W for strikethrough, and that's not widely enough
used to make sense to a lot of people.
