Well, one of the beauty of Revit is the ability to create views such as sections and elevations, in real time. For interior elevations, I can see architects drooling over the idea of having these type of drawings automatically generated from your floor plans. Well, drool away, but your interior elevations will not be created *exactly* the way you need them, and therefore they will require some tweaking. A lot of tweaking. A lot of long, tedious tweaking.
Because of some software glitch, Revit does not display properly the light weight of elements if the view cropping boundary is right on the line. This means that a floor element will not show its proper line weight if the interior elevation view boundary snaps exactly to it. Same goes for walls. Now, if you consider that Revit interior elevations will automatically snap to whichever boundary they find (being a ceiling, floors, walls, etc.) you understand all your automatically generated interior elevations will have wrong line weight.
To fix this, you need to move the view boundary away from the line, and Revit will display the correct line-weight.
