Do you mean in the card title or the card description? The card title is of course a "one liner".

While it seems logical not to allow line breaks in titles, “card title” is just a misnomer. Everybody uses card titles as short descriptions, since that’s all the text we can see when looking at a whole board.

Some people (including me) do need proper line breaks there. Trello should let people decide whether they want them or not. What wrong would supporting the standard shift + return shortcut do?

Some people resort to extreme hacks to emulate that feature (see https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/20492/how-do-i-insert-a-carriage-return-on-a-card-in-trello ).
