I agree. 

Also I think marginal notes are too different sorts of notes than the
ones in the Notes submenu. Footnotes and marginal notes are part of the
document structure, the other notes are more editorial devices (the
rather esoteric "gray text", whose purpose I never fully grasped, note
might be a hybrid). 

Here again, the English word form (which does not easily translate to
other languages) might be misleading. The (co-)incidence that all these
are termed "notes" in English does not mean they have much in common.
