In other words, we use Sigil and this feature to nudge epub3 developers to set the correct semantics all throughout their document so that special cases like these can be handled by readers.

How about that idea?
That's fine by me. I just didn't want Sigil to get into the business of guessing what might be a footnote or not. As long as it's used in the manner you described--to indicate that the semantics were set properly in a v3 EPUB--I don't mind. I just didn't want beginners seeing pop-ups for all their footnotes (EPUB2or3; semantics or no) and thinking that's the way it's going to work everywhere ("Look ... Popup footonotes just work like magic!").
