Well, for those that expect WYSIWYG behavior, this BR is crucial to achieve
the same result as in the wiki page.

That is not what I meant. By making it a template option, you would allow
to choose in the template whether or not the BR are inserted at all.

Similar there can be an option to add BR at the end of line in a paragraph
or not.

This would be in the zim output code, so independent of what you can do
with CSS on top of that.

Yep, that's what I meant :)

Sounds like there is need for both options.
