There are about 18 instances in Policy of this use of paragraph.  I'm okay
with changing them all to stanza if that is clearer to everyone.  I
personally am ambivalent; paragraph comes with the nice implication that
it's separated by a blank line, and I don't find it confusing.  But I've
probably been dealing with this stuff for too long.
