but a rule should be formed by a line not starting with tab, followed
by several lines which do start with tab.

Otherwise, make complains.  Observe:
$ printf '\ta:\n\techo x\n'|make -f -
/tmp/GmbxV37f:1: *** commands commence before first target.  Stop.

The current parser recognizes the first line of the example above as
variable assignment, so it should then complain about "commands without
any target".
