The callout element is a block element. Although it can be used in para it 
produces a list-like environment as you already know. However, it doesn't 
create a reference. If you want to make a reference to a callout bug, you 
have to use coref.

It is possible. :) I usually avoid block elements inside para. With the 
above modifications your code looks like this:

blahblahlah <co xml:id"myID_CO" />
 In this listing we blahblah  <coref linkend="myID_CO"/>

The linkends in co is only useful, if you use a callout list and want a 
back reference to the co element. In this example I think it's useless.

Hope this is useful. :)
