I really like this idea, I just forward the post and mockups to the  
rest of our UX team and our lead engineer.

>> This is not particularly transient

If the margin marks bar only appeared on pages with recognized  
content, then I think this would certainly count as being transient.   
Or, to be even less intrusive, a small mark could indicate content  
was recognized, and clicking on that could cause the margin marks bar  
to slide in.

Dimitri: this is a great idea and the mockups are really well done,  
thanks for posting it!
