Ah, but I claim it is just as reasonable to insist that they are NOT
the same change, since they are in different paragraphs. Does this
view cause problems?

Does the other (id) scheme allow DISJOINT change sections that are part
of "the same change"? If so I see that as useful. Otherwise allowing
a given change to span (only) contiguous tag boundaries doesn't seem
very useful.
