Is there a way to have subsection titles show in the margin of the page?

I'm never happy with subsections, I usually tend to avoid them. What I do like, is letting the readers know what's going on by using \marginpar. It would sometimes be useful if some of these (more important) margin notes were actual subsections of the document.

Take a look at the titlesec package. The manual (page 24-25) shows an example of a heading in the margin.
