I'm not sure how much I care about the printed text; if the printed text is
verse-per-line, this doesn't mean that I have to restrict the users to this.
Similarly, if the printed text uses pilcrows, it doesn't mean that users
have to see them.

I'm not sure what distinction you are drawing between "conceptual
paragraphs" and "actual paragraphs" unless it is just talking about
representing the text exactly.

I could put an option in to let people display the pilcrows... and then
maybe put some title text explaining them on mouseover...

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
