There are a lot of actions in Writer which work on the current paragraph: on the
paragraph the caret actually located in. If the actual paragraph were
highlighted (that is, have slightly different background color than other
paragraphs), it could improve usability and the user's understanding about the
working of the software.

So as the user wanders around with the caret in a text, the paragraph containing
the caret should be highlighted. That would allow the user to visually recognize
the exact scope of paragraph formatting commands such as alignment, indentation,
paragraph styles, etc. 

It can be a usability enhancement.
