The biggest issue with the idea of %p% as a structural markup is
that all of the other instances of %% are style markup.  Put another
way, we don't have equivalent %li%, %td%, %div%, etc.

It can be done easily enough ("any markup line beginning with %p is
a new paragraph"), but it just seems terribly inconsistent.
