Sorry, I did think that you were referring to data entry and not data

I have noticed that there are different types of data that I store in
Zim, short notes (one- or two- liners), paragraphs, and full pages.
Zim is terrific for storing notes that are full pages, and can be
adapted to storing notes that are one-liners by putting them all on a
page, but there really is no good way to handle the paragraph-sized
notes. The UI that you present looks like it would be terrific for
this use case. Basket from KDE works on a similar idea, that each page
could have different sized notes. However Basket's implementation is
horrible. This forced-medium sized UI looks like a better
implementation for at least the medium-sized notes.

Might these notes be placed on a regular page? If not, then how would
their organization fit in with the current Zim organization?
