We've got a precondition there that it will only match a <p> element, so
that's a good start. It then depends how many other rules there are that also
match <p> elements.

But yes, it would be good to look at some Word-ML stylesheets if anyone knows
of any. (I've come across a few over the years, but all specific to a
particular client.)
