In my experience:
(1) the vast majority of CDAs involve disclosures of routine information, and should have standard terms that are reasonably acceptable to both parties, not very one-sided terms
(2) it helps to make people be reasonable if a 2-way CDA is presented
(3) as you say, people very rarely comply with the marking requirement; they are therefore shooting themselves in the foot by accepting such a requirement
(4) the marking requirement is a bad habit that many large corporations have adopted, along with requiring a time limit on confidentiality. Too many people follow these habits or trends without thinking much about them.

In summary, I agree with the kitchen sink approach in most cases.
