As far as I remember:

<b>, <i>, <u> and related tags were developed as physical styles to
support presentation markup. 

<em> and <strong> were developed as semantic markup, where the text
is emphasized and where the text is displayed in a strong typeface.
It doesn't explicitly say what the presentation of the markup should
be, that's left to the user agent 

Where possible I would suggest using <em> and <strong> as that would
allow people to define what emphasis and strong typed text are.

As far as the content model for strong, it should allow all the
inline content that a pragraph does except other inline styles. While
it would be nice to remove all physical markup tags, they are needed
for backwards compatibility and graceful degradation.
