It is a possible solution to the clean view problem mentioned in
the org manuual:

  Indentation of text below headlines

  You may indent text below each headline to make the left
  boundary line up with the headline, like

            *** 3rd level
                more text, now indented

  A good way to get this indentation is by hand, and Org supports
  this with paragraph filling, line wrapping, and structure
  editing99 preserving or adapting the indentation as
  appropriate. A different approach would be to have a way to
  automatically indent lines according to outline structure by
  adding overlays or text properties. But I have not yet found a
  robust and efficient way to do this in large files.


The solution I posted implements that different approach, so you
don't have to do the indentation by hand.
