When reading this I somehow cannot help thinking that there must be a 
misunderstanding. There are no "other" ruler blobs. There are the text 
on path indent blobs and there are ruler blobs (namely 4 types of tab 
stops plus left/right and first line indent blobs). These are 
completely different things with different scopes (whole story as 
opposed to paragraph) so there is no reason why they should be 
displayed together. The text on path indent blobs are just like the 
text frame handles in a DTP program. These handles are never shown on 
the ruler bar, for good reasons.
