Just depending on unsupported attributes being ignored leads to ugly
faces, which are over-specified `so they work on all terminals'.
I.e., when someone can't be sure that just underline works, they specify
bold-underline-red.  Visible?  Yes.  Hideous?  Yes.

I'm not suggesting doing the above for 21.1, but something similar
*would* be useful, and almost trivial to implement.
