I also think the earlier behavior made more sense. The variable
org-insert-heading-respect-content (or the universal argument)
controls how a new headline is inserted BELOW the current header
(either add immediately after the current line or down below). I don't
see how this variable should alter the behavior of adding a heading
ABOVE the current header (ie. "respecting content" or not has no
effect here, above is always above).

You have a good point. Looking this way, the
org-insert-heading-respect-content variable is indeed of little use.
But since the variable does exist (even though perhaps it should be
deprecated?), it should behave correctly.
And I just don't see how the behavior of adding a header above the
current line should be impacted by it.
