When you add (for example) a time to a definition list:
;Blah Blah 16:30
:Blah Blah ok.
the colon on the first line breaks into a new line, nowiki has to be used to
solve this problem.
What are we supposed to do? Look ahead to the next line, or require the
definition definition delimiter to be on a new line? The latter is probably
more consistent, but of course, it breaks reverse-compatibility.
As I said, that kind of thing breaks reverse compatibility, so whether it will
make it in is questionable. The current behavior is deliberate, although I
would be inclined to say not especially useful.
