The biggest problem for me is the loss in $$. I like to resell my stuff when new cameras come out. With this ding in it I bet my resale value dropped $500-1000.... or maybe its a keeper for life. This brings up another question. Will canon fix body issues like this so it would look new again. And if so does that make any economical sense?

Since you took a black magic marker to the scuffed area, I think you should send it in to Canon Repair and have them give you an assessment. It'll cost you the price of shipping to find out how much they would charge for the repair. Maybe you'll get lucky and it'll get lost in transit..
