Panorama and DynaText support change bars and I use them extensively to
mark changes in the documents I'm creating.  Change tracking and management
is a particularly difficult problem in electronic publishing and something
that all of my clients have asked for help with.  Certainly within the
technical publications arena, change bars are the norm for marking changed
materials (ATA being a primary exception, probably because of historically
having severely limited formatting tools to work with).
