Support newlines and formatting in DV_TEXT

Description

The DataTypes specification indicates that a DV_TEXT instance should be for a single fragment of text with a particular format. DV_PARAGRAPH is intended to aggregate multiple instances of DV_TEXT to form a composite fragment of text with different paragraphs amd formats.
This has proven to unwieldy to use and although it may be possible when implementing a text editor it is not so easy when importing text from other sources such as messages and CDA documents.
Is it possible for DV_TEXT to be used in a way that supports multiple paragraphs and formatted text without the overhead of composing multiple instances within DV_PARAGRAPH?
