I don't know about their assumptions but I do know that I prefer that behaviour and it was one of the first departures I made from Markdown syntax.

When I insert a newline in my text, I mean for it to remain. I don't hard wrap my e-mail or other text.

The fixed-width character column can be useful but the paradigm is also brittle and pernicious; better to make things work without it because it smells really bad too.
