It is going to make the volume of the text double. Why not put within the
base text as bracketed and in different font? Of course, it would be not
simple straightforward for some other than 'omission/insertion/replacement'
type variants.

Example in the text I have created for my use:

Mt 1:10       Ἑζεκίας δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν Μανασσῆ,

              Μανασσῆς δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν Ἀμώς,

              Ἀμὼς[/Ἀμὼν] δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν Ἰωσίαν,

Mt 1:11       Ἰωσίας δὲ ἐγέννησεν [τὸν Ἰωακειμ

              Ἰωακειμ δὲ ἐγέννησεν] τὸν Ἰεχονίαν

              καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ

Those in the bracket in red font is for omission/insertion type.

Those in the bracket in red font with a slash is replacement type. If the
replaced word-group is long, it is marked with a suitable deliminator.  The
smaller font indicates the degree of acceptability.

The base text I used is WH text. Intra-text additions are gathered as I go
through my study, esp. compared to TR of KJV tradition.
