Comment (by gs25):

 Putting it in the Export tab is not what I want.  I am the researcher,
 designer, programmer and user, and I want a single click, like Permalink.
 If the map view is too cluttered then move "Add a note" to the "Edit" tab,
 but on my local version I can assure you it is not cluttered at all.

 And yes, I have thought about moving the marker.  It's a non-issue.  The
 key point is that the marker doesn't actually exist.  It's encoded in the
 URL and nowhere else.  If a user was to view the map and then click
 "Markerlink" he would get the same view, but with a marker in the centre.
 If the marker is in the wrong place then he can move the slippy map, zoom
 in/out whatever and click "Markerlink" again.  It is exactly the same as
 following these instructions but in one click:
