At first, I didn't understand the original post, but when I took the
original request to mean "no indent *on the first paragraph of the
chapter or section*", then the rest made more sense to me.

My take on the subject:

- indent is good if you want it;

- added blank line is good if you want it;

- both at once is never good; it's necessary to choose between extra
  blank OR indenting, and stick with your choice throughout a work;

- indenting the first paragraph of a chapter, or putting an extra blank
  line directly after the chapter heading, should both be
  eliminated. (Of course chapter headings should have suitable vertical
  space after them depending on the style - I'm talking about not also
  adding extra after that.)

- In either case, this means a special rule is needed: paragraphs should
  begin with indent, or with an added blank line - BUT not if this is
  the first paragraph.
