I think "precisely" is an overstatement.

I'd find it helpful here if other people would step in and say how
they find the existing documentation of paragraphs, paragraph-start and

If others also find it confusing and obscure, then it should be improved,
and I'm willing to do the improving.

If, on the other hand, others can read and understand it without too much
difficulty, then it's my personal problem which I'll have to deal with
myself in private.
