When mandoc(1) converts this to HTML, it doesn't add a <p> tag in front.
Although this is not a validation error, it does mean the resulting DOM

If you add "p { color: red; }" to the stylesheet, it's immediately clear
that the first paragraph of a section is not and cannot be styled like
the rest, because there's nothing telling the browser that it's a
paragraph in the first place. Because it is semantically a paragraph,
it should be wrapped in <p> in HTML output.
