The whole reason this discussion even came up is because the
heading-to-paragraph spacing was being made smaller than the
paragraph-to-paragraph spacing.  If it's the same or larger,
than the issue of blank lines after headings isn't an issue
at all.

<p class='vspace'> is inserted whenever there's one or more blank 
lines in the markup (with an exception for preformatted blocks).
It's that simple.
