This doesn't sound like a very good idea. If the paragraphs are 
themselves numbered, there should be no problem with referring to them 
by number. If they are not, it might make more sense (and be easier to 
implement) if the paragraph is referred to in number of paragraphs 
before or past the current paragraph: "we will discuss this in the next 
paragraph. As long as paragraphs are separated by a recognizable pause, 
there should be no problem.
