According to http://www.w3.org/TR/html5-diff/#obsolete-elements HTML tag <big> is obsolete and hence shouldn't be styled.

While the big tag may be obsolete, I would like to see it remain styled in _s. I think it is important to provide styling for deprecated elements like like big. It's possible that this tag exists in the content of many WordPress installations. By dropping support we would affect their wishes as well as the display of their site. I would like to keep the styling for big, strike, and tt even though they have been deprecated from html5.

The draft states:

User agents will still have to support them and various sections in HTML5 define how.

If a user agents will still be supporting the tags, I think it is best that we do too.
