Hi Steve, 

Being unfamiliar with the text being quoted, I am not sure of your usage here - it feels off from the current spec of <mark>, which I think of as the semantic equivalent of a text high-lighter. Your usage in the quote feels more like an <aside>. 

Or I'm completely off base - also entirety possible. 

Can you think of another example?

I have  been mulling over use of <mark> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/text-level-semantics.html#the-mark-element to denote notes added to quoted text


 "That monster custom, who all sense doth eat
 Of habit's devil," <mark> not in Folio </mark>

 "What a falling off was there !
 From me, whose love was of that dignity
 That it went hand in hand even with the vow
 I made to her in marriage, and to decline
 Upon a wretch."
