I fully agree with this, I find this “feature” very irritating.  There
is a strong expectation that hitting enter inserts a line break
at the position of the cursor.  Can we please stick to that?

When I put the cursor in the middle of a word and press enter that also
“breaks” the word.  Yet we would not prevent the user from doing this.
