Thanks for the pointer--unfortunately, the documentation says "Floating
material, footnotes, marginpars appearing inside them will be lost."  And
we definitely need floats (tables, figures, footnotes) to work with this.

I'm also assuming (this is addressed back to the list again) that it would
not be easy to modify xdvipdfmx to allow it to produce change bars in the
margin, and therefore to work with the changebar package.

I guess I'll have to figure out some alternative way to mark
changes--color, underlining, line-out, or some such.
