We could issue a fuzzy declaration such as, "Indent case blocks, except in situations where an unreasonable amount of code would end up so-indented, causing readability problems".

Two examples of situations where indenting case blocks would cause readability problems are the JavaScriptCore interpreter and, to a lesser extent, the JavaScriptCore JIT. All of Interpreter.cpp would suddenly be indented by an extra 4 spaces, sucking up valuable horizontal real estate.
