I agree with the submitter of bug 34058. Later parts of a block should
not be indented. A clear use case is this:

block: The following formula
nested block: displayed formula
block continued: proves our point.

In this example, even the sentence continues, and should not be
indented. The same is true if the second part would start with a new
sentence. If a user wants to start a new paragraph, with new
indentation, a new block should be specified.
