It is cool but doesn't play well with margins, as you have seen.  I've
given up on cool and use the following instead:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(latex "%s\\footnote{%s\\\\ %s}\\marginpar{\\fbox{\\thefootnote}}"
                                                     (eq todo "")
"\\fbox{\\textsc{%s%s}}" todo priority))
                                                 heading content))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Yes, this is a problem with latex and not org.  It is very difficult
(read: I have never managed to figure out how to do it ;-) to control
the parskip and parsep aspects of paragraphs in a footnote.  The
=endnotes= package should allow you to control the behaviour more but
even there I have not been entirely successful (I can get it to listen
to parskip but not parident settings).
