My knowledge of Marcion is very basic so I've been following this general line of discussion with interest and am keeping an open mind. But one thing that suddenly comes to mind, as I look at the introduction of the Marcionite gospel, is the idea that Luke and Acts imitate Josephus, which seems odd for Marcion to do if his gospel is otherwise (or purposely) without Judaic elements (which is my present understanding).
You know in spite of all you gained, you still have to stand out in the pouring rain.

Finally a smart comment.

Now that I have Jason BeDuhn, The First New Testament, I have gone back and added some coding to this reconstruction of the Marcionite gospel. Details of this updated coding are included in the OP. Having both Roth's specific verbal reconstruction and BeDuhn's general thematic reconstruction (where it does not overlap with Roth's, which takes precedence) ought to provide some more perspective on the text.

The new coding is not based on color; it is based on font choices (underlining and italicizing) for the black (unattested) words or phrases left over from Roth.
