Why? Or rather, maybe you could explain how you think it should work?
The way it works right now seem fine to me... I did some test here:
and I like it that no blank line produces no extra vertical spaces,
whereas one or more blank lines produce some extra space. This is also
consistent with how (normal) horizontal spaces are treated.

Wouldn't using <br> affect placement of figures/tables as well?

Is there a page where the different alternatives are discussed? It's been
a while now and I've forgotten what they are...
