We implemented the highlight-on-hover because we'd heard from developers that
it is useful (see bug 16532). But it's easy to see how the current
implementation can be distracting, and that you might want the inspected node
to be highlighted as well.

One possibility I've considered is to use the current highlight only for the
inspected node, and then have a simpler, subtler highlight for the hovered
node. This could be a more transparent and less opaque version of the current
highlight, a simple outline, or something different altogether.
