You can add role attribute to para and modify stylesheet.

Rendering of xref text is left upon stylesheets. You can very easily
modify both DSSSL and XSL stylesheets to include page numbers.

For example look at common/dbl1en.dsl for (define (en-xref-strings)). In
"macros" for xref text, you can use %p which will be substited by page
