Maybe I'm daft, but is the question can <chapter> contain <p> ?  If so, 
I am very much in favour of this.  I can point out MANY occurances of 
this if, indeed, this is the discussion topic.  Since traditional 
chapter breaks are absolutely rediculous 20+% of the time, I would 
suggest that paragraphs would span traditional chapter division as least 
this much.
