If you save the file, those lines are really removed. So no problem
there. The line endings are still shown to make sure that if you undo
(Ctrl-Z) your changes that the line endings are kept.

Sure it is. Otherwise we'd have to show 'empty' lines on the right view
instead of removing them - that would confuse users even more.
