Sorry for the delay in reviewing this - I had to track down the correct people.

We think IE standards mode is the correct behaviour. <br> is intended to be a
line break and not a paragraph break. <p> is for paragraphs. The spec says "br
elements must not be used for separating thematic groups in a paragraph" and
further says that this is an abuse of the <br> element.

<br> should mean a line break within a paragraph and not be treated as a
paragraph break. We don't currently plan to change this behaviour in IE9.
