I know what they do, but is there any point in actually inserting
something as visually distracting as ^L into the buffer people are
looking at?

If one, for instance, just made the ^L invisible, it'd look nicer, and
there would be minimal code change.

A better solution would probably to get rid of it altogether and instead
insert a `form-feed' text property that the `C-x [' (and friends)
command would use instead.
