The suggested document doesn't mention releases, as far as I read. If I
understand correctly, it suggests that each "paragraph" of the Changelog
describes a modification, or a day of work...

I'd say that in general the main goal of a changelog is to map each
_release_ to a set of changes (OK, and a date too), so that the reader
can answer immediately to the questions:
- what's new in version x?
- in which version was capability y introduced?

So I fear even that doesn't really answer Paul's question.
