See https://github.com/BetterCrypto/Applied-Crypto-Hardening/pull/36

Whole-page bitmap seems the only way to not interfere with selection, meh…
Quoting the PR:
	• Replace textual mark by whole-page bitmapped image. This is necessary to avoid accidental selection of the mark when copy&paste-ing from the document.
	• Add a draft-indicator at bottom and top of the page.
Eventually, we can:

	• Remove the watermark altogether
	• Remove the draft-info from the normal page footer.
