Just to note that, in your model of non-orthogonal axes, you can't
adjust the values independently like this. Moreover, your model of the
axes being number of semantic elements and fraction of semantic elements
doesn't work terribly well -- consider Matthew's point about the
existence of <i> and <b> increasing the utility of <em> and <strong>.
