One could do following:

- remember paragraph at point
- split it as words
- record those words
- jump to point
- search in buffer upwards and downwards for some regex like word.*word.*word.*

Maybe that think process could help in locating the exact point.

Or point could remember also the few words or line, and search for it
straight, up or down.

If it does not exist, point should destroy itself by asking user for it.
