--- Comment #25 from Richard Morris <r...@singsurf.org> ---
Just to add a further complication. 

Bug 37938 is about support for definition lists in VE. As you all know Wikitext
plays fast and loose with these transforming : into <dd>. VE being pretty
strict with its html does not play nicely with these. I recently found a tricky
bug where its difficult to add text after a maths equation 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback/Archive_2014_2#Trying_to_add_a_line_after_an_equation

Quite what VE's long term plan for using : as indentation I'm not quite so sure
on. 

As to "heuristic is unwanted by the community". I think this refers to poll at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Mathematics#Should_display_equations_be_centered.3F
which was closed at "Consensus is overwhelmingly in favour of left alignment.".
The heuristic was mentioned a little in the discussion. I don't think many
really understood what heuristic was about so we can't really conclude what the
community  thinks of the idea.
