I have now a solution that appears to be working using grouping. I
simplified things (I think) by putting the group of adjacent things into a
temporary container element so I could then do preceding and following
sibling checks that would be scoped to my group.

Given that, I then have a recursive template that takes a sequence of
paragraphs, the current container, and the level.

Given that information, I can know whether or not to start a new container
and how to select the groups within the input sequence.

For recursive calls I construct the context like so:

following-sibling::*[(@level = $level + 1) and
                     preceding-sibling::*[@level = $level][1][. is $me]]

Where $me is the current node that "contains" the following nodes.

There's probably a more elegant way to do this, but it seems to work for my
real input data.

Thanks to all for helping me work this out.
