I don't particularly care whether the brackets are shown or not, but I
dislike things that change the visual appearance as you roll over
them. The web is full of such things and they drive me bananas: you
are trying to read something and you roll over something in the text
that changes its appearance, possibly shifting the text that you are
reading and leaving you to chase it around the page - good bye,
concentration.  Even if you do it by just switching visibility on the
brackets, it's distracting when you are reading; it might be helpful
when composing but I'm not convinced even for that.

If this proposal is considered at all, *please* make it optional.

My 2 cents.
