No, please do not have this as default behaviour.  It would break normal
documents.  In the most innocuous case, it would allow documents to have
headings as the last part of a page with the text on the next page, a
typesetting faux pas (looking rather ugly).  LaTeX documents look
inherently nicer than the typical word processed document because LaTeX
actually adjusts spacing of not only within lines but also between lines
and paragraphs to have the page look good.

As Tim has suggested, adding this snippet to Worg would be useful and
maybe an item in the FAQ.  As well, it might be useful to suggest
checkbox lists for people that want to export a long TODO list (which
might not be appropriate for all, of course).

thank you,
eric
