To me, this is another reason for comment and #+attr_X lines not to break
paragraphs, as then we can just re-use #+attr_X lines.

│ Hi there look at

│ inline_mark{some content}

As mentioned previously, this would also be rather nice for comments in
paragraphs and also applying attributes to a link in a paragraph, i.e.
│ I'm a big fan of the
│ #+attr_html: :title Visit the Org homepage
│ [[https://orgmode.org/][Org]]
│ project.

All the best,
