I like this from an economy of coding point of view, but I don't write like this because it doesn't express my mental model.

That is, I think of the indentation as being:

Paragraphs in general are indented by XXX space on the first line, except for the first paragraph in a section, which is not indented.


I don't really think of it as being:

Paragraphs are not indented, unless they follow another paragraph.
