The music is annoying. Kill the drums. I don’t need ear candy. Or push it back to a less intrusive layer.

This is a very interesting issue for digital paper. How much have we / do we lose from authors and readers because annotation and illumination are not easily, and therefore not readily, done. Doable, but not as organically and easily doable.
