I don't think so.  Only the first paragraph of an answer gets the
styling (left-margin, for example).  Some parts of an answer (code
snippets, for example) aren't paragraphs.

I realize that.  It was just a mock-up to start with.

Since PageTableOfContents isn't part of the distribution, some
stripped FAQ-only TOC code could have been written to do something
similar without interfering with existing sites.  It seems like Pm
wold rather redefine the Q:/A: markup instead of using div markup
