Right now, @indent effect seems to be explicitly done only in the top
level context, as there is an explicit condition on 

  $self->{'format_context'}->[-1]->{'cmdname'} eq '_top_format'

which uses a pseudo-command.  It could be a bit more complicated than
just removing the condition, as I don't think that we want to indent
normally in @multitable, not @*table, nor in @itemize, @enumerate...

There are definitively differences in Info and HTML, in @format the
spaces and end of lines are kept as is and shown as is in the output,
while in flushleft, in info, end of lines are kept and in HTML it is in
a regular paragraph except that it has align="left".

I haven't looked at DocBook, but I guess there are differences there
