I think this just illustrates the difficulty in deciding what to do. I 
can imagine an individual ability to make an item on an MP as 
invisible-nonprinting, but if someone wants to edit the MP in some other 
way, while it might act like there are superficial edits, it really 
should be cloning or creating a new variant of the original that shows 
up when to edit MPs. Otherwise, as Louis says, you run the risk in a 
large document of people thinking they have something that they don't. 
Needing to proofread a long document for tiny variations is not a good 
choice. It also adds to the development overhead by then creating a need 
for some automated way of scanning/tracking these per-page edits.
