It doesn't matter much. It is rather clear that the ruby markup is  
intended for a particular Chinese and Japanese typographical device.  
You'd use the markup whenever you want to use that typographical  
device. Bothering authors with what they profoundly mean when they  
use the typographical device isn't particularly helpful.

(This is somewhat analogous to <i> and the Latin script.)
