Sorry for being late to the party, but, IMO, this doesn't sound like
a right approach to the problem of invisible emphasis markers. A user
choosing to hide emphasis markers should not need to—or even be given
the opportunity to—display them in order to edit them efficiently.

I think we should upgrade `org-emphasize' command instead, so it handles
both marker visibility states in a DWIM, or in a word processor,
fashion. Indeed, since emphasis markers of a given type cannot be nested
in Org, the WIM part is usually easy to guess, according to the context,
i.e., the syntax at point, and the region. I have some draft lying
somewhere in that direction.
