No fret markers is yet another piece of tradition that we can do better without. Classical guitar is hard enough. Fret markers make it that much easier. I specc'ed them on my Gore, and added decals on my Rodriguez. Fret markers for the win!
Fret markers are ok but I think they become less useful as you gain fretboard knowledge. Too many fret markers can actually make things more confusing. I've seen guitars with a marker on almost every fret and I just think that is too much.
Here is is a guitar that is sort of like the one I saw on the Bay.

I love Art Nouveau, but I would never buy this guitar because of the fret markers on 3,5,7,9,12,15,17, and 19. This is a steel-stringed instrument but I saw a nylon-stringed guitar that had the same markers, and they were huge inlaid markers so there was no way to blot them out. I got a headache just looking at it.
