Then:

<p><line>if foo</line>
   <line>    puts bla</line>
   <line>end</line></p>

Would be:

 if foo puts blaend

I don't know about you, but the XHTML 2 draft did not give me this
impression, although it only suggested a default rendering for visual
UA's.

It's description of <line> as "represents a sub-paragraph" suggests
it has slightly more semantic meaning than a <span>, which should be
preserved in all default renderings.  Of course, "represents a
sub-paragraph" also suggests to me that <line> may not be the best name
-- maybe there's another tag in <line> struggling to be born :)
