I'm not sure I'd call this the "ultimate redefinition solution" because
it completely ignores the fact that there should be some underlying
*reason* why you need to present a word or phrase in boldface (or 
italic or whatever).  A large segment of the people responding to the
original survey question indicated that they use multiple character
format names that all produce a boldface result, because the 
different tag names allow them to capture some semantic metadata
about what makes the word or phrase special. 

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Of course, IMO the ultimate redefinition solution is to redefine the
shortcuts so they apply character and/or paragraph formats.  What
could be simpler than redefining CTRL+B to apply a bold character
format?  This could benefit both novice and experienced writers alike.
 I'm surprised this functionality isn't built into Frame, or at least
into Framescript (I haven't delved into the latter deeply enough to
discover it, if FS does indeed  possess this functionality).
