Not a bad idea, it will solve most of the examples and screen outputs. 
But there are many occurences of it, and it would transfer the annoyance 
to the authors of the book. It also doesn't cope with XML comments, so 
it would not be a complete solution. I myself does not see this as a 
problem, as I normally don't have to run "make editmode" or "make 
commitmode" before I start editing the files, and "make sync" and "make 
bookdiff" execute those commands automatically. So I barely notice the 
extra work with the ﳢ fillers. If I have manually changed into 
editmode, a single "make commitmode" before commit cleans up everything.
