I wouldn't like them enabled by default (in many cases, they would just be
unnecessary clutter).
However, iWork shows paragraph symbols on text highlight, indicating whether
you're selecting the line break or not. Perhaps we could do that?

I'm a bit concerned about the visibility of the characters. I'm not sure we can
always rely on the selection color providing enough contrast, especially at 50%
opacity. A single solid color would be easier to manage if bugs were to arise.

I can suggest the color #6abed3 for now, but please feel free to suggest
different ones.
