I have been fighting the highlight on hover today while inspecting the
inspector to do some DOM and CSS editing. Some thoughts:

* Highlighting should be disabled while editing either the DOM or CSS. IMHO.
Maybe not entirely disabled, just locked to the edited/selected node?
* Consider not scrolling for hovered highlights? The page jumps around a lot
when hovering. 
* Highlight only when you hover over a node for a small amount of time. Many
times you move across the DOM tree and a cacophony of highlights flash at you
in the inspected page. This might solve my previous point too.
* Maybe we should only highlight the selected node? A subtile hover highlight
might be OK too.
