Content fragment multiline text should be accessible

Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Strong and Em tags in multiline text in Content Fragments
Use-case: editing multiline text in RTE components while meeting requirements for WCAG 2.0
Current/Experienced Behavior: b/i/u buttons create <b>,<i>,<u> tags which have no semantic meaning
Improved/Expected Behavior: in order to convey meaning to users using assistive technology, we should be able to add <strong> and <em> instead of <b> and <i>. <u> on the other hand has little semantic value and will likely confuse users who will think it is a link. it should probably be removed or replaced with something with similar semantic meaning like  the <mark> element
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): AEM 6.4-6.5
