Yes. That's what happens with the Default stylesheet. If you have two 
consecutive Text cells in a notebook with the JournalArticle Stylesheet, 
then when you press Backspace at the beginning of the second one, the two 
cells merge.

The issue I mention below of two consecutive Equation cells doesn't happen 
with a Default stylesheet, since there is no Equation style in this case.
