Please explain how this is even remotely relevant for a programming language.

(Clearly, this was written by people who were trying to encode word processing text.
The giveaway is the phrase “simple text editors such as program editors”.
This recommendation is attempting to solve a problem that programming languages do not have.
I’m not aware of any uptake in the word processing world, either.)

On the other hand, it seems like every editor that I've looked at so far will not render these characters as newlines,

I have just tried to open a file containing U+2028 and U+2029 in four different text editors / integrated environments on my Mac. All of them recognise both characters as newlines (and increment the line number for those that display it).
