It looks like the line break is hardcoded into the section break. With this option (in the inspector), there could be section breaks inside systems without them automatically creating a new line.

1) Add a section break in the middle of a system

What happens: All following measures go to a new line

What should happen: If this new "no line break" checkbox is ticked, the new section should start in the middle of the system, without a line break.


Comments

Section breaks have many uses other than separating movements of traditionally-notated classical works. A symphony might have 3 such section breaks that need the double bar, and a composer might produce nine symphonies in a lifetime. An educational worksheet might contain 30 section breaks that don't need the double bar, and the educator might produce a dozen worksheets in a week. I'd err on the side of not making things worse.
