FYI the current behavior is not by design, but a side-effect of how  
the things are implemented internally in TM.

Changing the internals is a to-do item, it’s something which affects  
many things, so I am not just special-casing this one to get a quick  
fix, as special casing it has the trade-off of duplicated code, and  
many other things could just as well be picked to be special-cased,  
like the increase/decrease indent [1], which is not ideal either.
