It being an immediate feedback is indeed the goal. No idea if that strokes

I would have a problem with this; I see no use case where it is usefull to 
have this permanently on screen.  To add this would additionally mean an 
extra mode of interaction.  I hate modes.
All use cases I know of are covered by the 3 points I started my previous 
email with.  If you know of a use case that is different, please point it 
out so we can factor that into the equation.
