The Haskell 1.4 report says what is meant to happen (section 1.5)
(which was to follow the convention).
The Haskell 98 report omits this section.
I would like to report this omission as a bug in the report.
[I think this is a different bug from the "how do Bird tracks affect
layout?" bug reported by Malcolm Wallace earlier today.]
