Right. Unfortunately, this is a problem with the editing code in general. The test coverage isn't that great. So places where we make changes like this may cause regressions without breaking tests and the canonicalization code is really difficult to reason about.

This code is not clearly wrong to me, but it does set off a red flag. I'm not sure what the correct path forward in cases like this are. My intuition is that we check this in as is and, if it causes a regression, it'll get reported and we can add a test + fix then. Adding Darin to this bug for his opinion on this.

I'm definitely OK with adding a null-check and a FIXME pointing to bug 40342. Not inserting the line-break here is wrong IMO, but it's obviously much better than crashing and definitely won't cause regressions.
