I was actually referring to editors with smart syntax highlighting (and
mostly tongue-in-cheek, as I don't mean to offend those who use inferior
editors). But I completely disagree with you. In general, we want to
have whitespace-only lines continue at the same level, for instance in
code blocks, so we don't have to type out all those spaces each time.
