Yes.  Considering an option like:

(setq org-allow-blank-lines   ;; or org-allow-max-blank-lines
         '((org-level-1 . 2)
           (org-level-2 . 1)
           (list-item   . 1)    
           (t . delete)) 

The rule for handling trailing blank lines would be as follow : when
moving/cutting a subtree of level N, only allow a definite number of
trailing blank lines (L_n).  If there is more than L_n lines, try to
decide whether these additional blank lines are part of the subtree
above... etc.  If blank lines cannot be attached to a subtree, either
delete them, or reject them at the end of the subtree.

Not sure how this could be implemented, but I just wanted to clarify
what I had in mind.
