Comment (by aduth):

 Replying to [comment:37 azaozz]:
 > That would mean they will always be "pulled out" on a new line, even
 when inside other tags. That may result in unwanted `<p>` after
 `</script>`. Another option would be to remove leading line breaks before
 `<script...>`. This can still bring edge cases but perhaps less often. Not
 really sure what's the "lesser evil" here :)

 I wonder if rather than treating these as block-level elements (which
 they're not) if it would be preferable then to omit them from this
 includes/formatting.php#L495 `$allblocks` set] (so as not to trigger this
 includes/formatting.php#L497-L501 "pull out" newline behavior]), but still
 apply a similar treatment to them in [https://github.com/WordPress
 includes/formatting.php#L561-L562 unwrapping them from `p`] (`$allblocks`
 at this line becomes effectively equivalent to `$allblocks .

 Could you share an example markup string where you'd expect the described
 issue might occur?
