No. There may be a workaround but it is a lot of work. :-/

You may be able to style paragraphs without a class name with:

   p:not([class]), p[class=""]{
     color: blue;
   p:empty{ /*not sure if we have these*/

These "vertical space" paragraphs are converted from a double linebreak 
in the wiki code.

Those that are not ".vspace" are usually immediately at the beginning, 
or after the end of another container (div, table, heading or other).

Those at the beginning could be styled with

   p:first-child {...} or more likely
   p:first-child:not([class]), p:first-child[class=""] { ... }

Those right after a heading could be styled with:

   h2 + p:not([class]), h2 + p[class=""] {}
   h3 + p:not([class]), h3 + p[class=""] {}

etc. for h1 to h6, table, div or other PmWiki:BlockMarkups .
