I am not sure an option is the right thing here, because it will continue to
remain difficult to figure out where to put the boundaries.

The best might be to look *before* a heading and see how many empty
lines there are, and then include up to that many lines below the subtree.
It seems to me that this might get quite close to the right behavior,
but I am sure there will be cases where also this idea will not work
