Hi Jeff,
I agree,
The house-keeping for creating/removing of arrow markers is excessive.
The arrow is the primary use of the marker in lines and paths. We
should consider an arrow attribute for lines and paths, with the
default being the stroke color. Build in base arrow-style(s) ,and if
we want a different style we can always go to the marker.

Regards,
Francis
