Parsoid should strip empty headings
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Users were complaining that emptied headings left behind '===<nowiki/>===' in wikitext. We did a horrible hack in T51452 to strip these in VE, but really storing empty headings as headings isn't a problem in HTML, but wikitext, so this should be addressed by Parsoid.
