CTAN has a new package: pdfmarginpar
pdfmarginpar provides the \pdfmarginpar command which is similar in spirit to \marginpar. How- ever, it creates pdf-annotations which can be viewed with Adobe Reader instead of normal text margins: small icons indicate the in-text position where the message originates, popups provide detailed messages. The advantage over \marginpar is that bugﬁxes and communication is clearly visible together with its text source and the document as such is not obscured.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/pdfmarginpar . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/pdfmarginpar (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

pdfmarginpar – Generate marginpar-equivalent PDF annotations
The package provides the \pdfmarginpar command which is similar in spirit to \marginpar. However, it creates PDF annotations which may be viewed with Adobe Reader in place of marginal texts. Small icons indicate the in-text position where the message originates, popups provide the messages themselves. Thus bugfixes and other such communications are clearly visible together when viewing the document, while the document itself is not obscured.
