So, have them outside the modelling logic. They are quite useful for
markings, measurement lines and so on. They are very useful for laser
cutting. But, neither of those applications need for them to interact with
other objects, they can easily be considered as a separate "layer" which
does not interact with anything else.

Doesn't matter much, any 2D vector format works. I often use SVG, as it's an
understandable format that's easy to edit by hand if needed, but pretty much
anything can work.
