I tried this, and yes you are right. It seems full justification 
modifies the tab end-point (this may be a bug, since it doesn't seem it 
should do that). What's worse is that it's variable, so there is no way 
to compensate for it.

You might consider two separate frames, but maybe this is what you are 
suggesting. It would give you the most control, but for 1000 groups 
maybe a bit tedious - it might work best to do all your right hand frame 
paragraphs first, then the left frame, so you can manage page breaks. 
Make sure you use Align to Baseline Grid to line up the text in the two
