I don't know why you say it's minor; Welles says some of the most important things about his art and his Othello here, and it's a beautifully crafted thing, esp. when he is sitting and talking to the camera.
Unfortunately, though, I've read elsewhere that Criterion has no current plans to release any more of Welles' works. Pity.
I am seduced by FO in a very special way: it may be the most sensuous, intimate portrait of Welles there is, esp. in the 35 mm print Gary Grave showed.

The entire restoration attempt would have been shown had the snowstorm in Chicago not prevented half of the film from arriving.
The end title music was remixed into stereo for a rather incongruous effect,
