Is it okay if there are rules continuously down the right column? If so,
this is fairly simple to do with layers/backgrounds + MetaFun.

If you want for there to be exactly three rules per paragraph, then that
is more complicated. I can think of some bad solutions (\everypar, Lua
callbacks), but I'll leave it to someone else to think of a good
solution.

Thanks,
