Two newlines does not seem obviously wrong to me.  It is a way of
denoting the end of the key summary, just like the "key" and "binding"
column headers that are also inserted to denote the start.  We could
probably do something fancy like using a text property to mark the
extent of the key summary, but that seems like overengineering, and
anyway it might break third-party code that relies on the old behavior.

Feel free to submit a patch for consideration, if you care a lot about
replacing those two newlines, though.
