We might consider splitting the edit quick reference into 2 chunks, 
one that displays below (or above) the edit box and one that renders 
to the left or right, pushing down the normal sidebar (or appearing 
below it). It is easy to modify the template to include a page only 
if action=edit.

In the side bar chunk, put markups used for structuring the overall 
shape of the page: such as headings, lists, tables and footnotes.

In the below (or above) chunk, put markups that help the author get
across specific messages, such as inline markups and links.

I'll see if I can make an example...
