There's an exception in editors (in edit mode) where these fillers may
be displayed distinctly (but this is true for any other controls)

It may be useful exactly in the situation where you've only partly
entered a syllable block which still not conforms to the normal Hangul
syllable syntax (which should always contain two characters, at least
one leading consonnant or a filler, and at least one vowel or a
filler, trailing consonnants jamos being optional but normally never
occuring before the two other kind of characters in the standard
syntax): a visible glyph may show to the user that the syllable is not

But if the editor is working in WYSIWYG mode only, nothing will be
displayed in the document itself (but that visible control glyph may
be shown within the IME input panel and inserted the document only
when the syllable is complete).
