I agree about the last example, but what about "Heading [0/1] text"?

May you elaborate about "newline > tab, tab = 8 spaces"?

Well. Not languages per se. (I have none in mind)
I was thinking about various representations of footnotes. In
particular, footnotes in ascii/texinfo export.

However, I now checked what we do about footnotes in Org manual, and we
do not use spaces:

    The summary type.  If specified, the column values for parent nodes
    are computed from the children(1).

So, maybe it is safe to assume that spaces are not commonly used right
before footnote references.

This is only for footnotes though. The code responsible for removing
certain AST objects during export works not just foot footnotes. Unless
there is a strong reason to treat footnotes specially, I'd prefer a more
universal solution of the problem that will work for all kinds of
removed objects.
