No need.

>From the Commentary of file `thingatpt.el':

;; The function bounds-of-thing-at-point finds the beginning and end
;; positions by moving first forward to the end of the "thing", and then
;; backwards to the beginning.  By default, it uses the corresponding
;; forward-"thing" operator (eg. forward-word, forward-line).
;; Special cases are allowed for using properties associated with the named
;; "thing":
;;   forward-op         Function to call to skip forward over a "thing" (or
;;                      with a negative argument, backward).
;;   beginning-op       Function to call to skip to the beginning of a "thing".
;;   end-op             Function to call to skip to the end of a "thing".
;; Reliance on existing operators means that many `things' can be accessed
;; without further code:  eg.
;;     (thing-at-point 'line)
;;     (thing-at-point 'page)

It's enough that there's a function `forward-paragraph'
that moves forward over a paragraph.

`thing-at-point' is designed to be usable out of the
box with LOTS of things.
