I do sometimes group several small definitions together in .mli files,
like this

     (* Comment for f1 *)
     val f1 : t1
     (* Comment for f2 *)
     val f2 : t2
     (* Comment for f3 *)
     val f3 : t3

     (* Comment for g1 *)
     val g1 : t1
     (* Comment for g2 *)
     val g2 : t2

and for this the indentation convention would be useful.

On the other hand, having to insert blank lines between these would not
bother me all that much.
