Yes, it works. I'm currently using "body p" to overcome this in every style sheet.

I wonder if using some other selector would work too, like "* + p" (a paragraph following any other element) or "body p" (any paragraph inside the <body>). In principle, those have higher priority than just "p", and would affect all paragraphs.
