I sense that it is usual, at least in RFU-land, for the primary mark to be on the 5 for the non-throwing team. At Under 15 I will mark both lines on the 5. I only give a mark for the thrower with my stationary front foot (not a mark on the ground) when I am an AR.
Why not a mark on the ground?

I personally find it very useful to have a physical mark to refer to in the event of the 'hooker' stepping off!

I usually rely on my AR to mark the spot on the touch line or if I've got a TJ I'll do both to stop the inevitable drift that hookers try.

I actually mark the defending team line out on the 5M line so the attacking team can set their gap.
