Paragraph rsid?

Working on the comparison made me realize it would be good to also be able to compare paragraphs by rsid (independently of the rsid of text they contain) and I also noticed that the MS Word xml contains something like a paragraph rsid.

After a few days of exploring how the Ts and Ps in the ODF xml work, I wasn't able to set the rsid number independently on the paragraph and its text (some factors like automatic merging at saving and loading were preventing me from doing this, but I believe it is the actual purpose of the Ps and Ts that is making it impossible in the first place) So, the best option (for now) is to make a new rsid attribute and set it only on entire paragraphs:

<style:style style:name="P1" style:family="paragraph" style:parent-style-name="Standard">
<style:text-properties style:rsid="001a97ee" style:paragraph-rsid="001a97ee"/>
<style:style style:name="P2" style:family="paragraph" style:parent-style-name="Standard">
<style:text-properties style:rsid="001a97ee" style:paragraph-rsid="001b9628"/>
<style:style style:name="T1" style:family="text">
<style:text-properties style:rsid="001b9628"/>
<text:p text:style-name="P1">1111111111111</text:p>
<text:p text:style-name="P2">
<text:span text:style-name="T1">22222222</text:span>

The xml doesn't look (as beautifully) as I would want it to (if I manage to set the text rsid only on text) but it contains all the necessary information.
