I assumed the editor widget would be frozen/set read-only until the info 
bar is processed by the user, so both seem intrusive.

OTOH the info bar would probably allow switching documents without doing 
anything which would solve a (for me) major annoyance with the modal 
dialog when ctrl-tabbing through docs. So not equally intrusive.

What solution can you suggest? I find the info bar superior and don't 
care about the fallback really.

Best regards.
