As you pointed out, the rules try to address things as they happen. Accidentally moving a marker or picking up your disc before marking is more likely to happen earlier in the process of preparing to make your throw than later. Thus, commenting on this in the Marking a Lie seems to make more sense than Interference which is a specialty area not part of a normal throw sequence.

Maybe just some footnotes in one section, pointing towards another?

I think especially in this day and age more people carry a smart phone with the ability to look-up online than a regular book, foot notes could even be replaced by hyper-links.

This is especially true with something like this scenario where moving a disc during marking you could jump back and forth. interference, stance, marking a lie? Stance inside and outside the circle for one. I get why they are in different places but could use some linking.

As a general note on the rules, hyper-links need to re-direct to any relevant Q&A or clarifications as well. Plenty of rules I thought were clear and understood then the Q&A might somewhat contradict. IF one *thinks* they understand the text they aren't going to the Q&A for clarification.

I think in the scenario of, moving the disc in the process of marking the lie (flipping it then realizing that is casual and move it back), is not interference (although it may not be totally proper), marking with the mini and throwing from the proper mark.
Its not proper but I just don't see a penalty or even an official warning other than a casual reminder in the rules.

Or, the footnotes could by hyper-linked in the digital versions.

Ignoring the doctrinal interpretation of the rule, the practical answer to your question would be: almost never. Marking violations are regularly ignored since they are usually inconsequential. My first tournament was a two day A tier, played with three discs and no marker. No one said squat about my using another disc, or a stick, or nothing at all, to mark my lie. While that won't always be the case, I have continued to violate (for the sake of experiment) the marking rules ever since, and have only been warned once.
