It inserts a line break in the source if you havent't inserted it yourself.

No I don't. Both ways are valid HTML transitional. But if someone requires  
one, there is a way to have it.

I guess that if someone noticed there is a difference and it bothers him so  
much, he would simply insert a line break on the wiki page.

I am reluctant to change it. Not only both ways are valid HTML transitional.  
I'm sure that if knowledgeable and purist authors have a table cell starting  
on the same line, upgrading to a new version will insert <p> paragraph tags  
they didn't ask for and possibly break their layout. :-)

It may be a good way to see if this feature is needed by many people.
