This sounds just terrible to me. I don't want to require huge numbers
of blank lines whenever I want deeply nested lists, etc. People don't
always use such blank lines when they write (non-markdown) plain text
emails or documents, and I think mandating them in general is a mistake.
The current inconsistent hodge-podge behavior, which horribly breaks
on all the edge cases, is of course also not the right solution.
