Let's start with facts

Flat Magic Pen. Marks X9
7.83 Magic pen.

Hybrid Pen. Marks X9
5.49 Magic pen
8.1 Armor Pen


So we are giving up 2.34 Magic penetration for 8.1 armor pen.

So my question is, is it worth it?

Only if autoattacks give you enough damage to make up for the lost damage, so only on hybrid builds that actually do both types of damage: Kayle, Kennen, Kog'maw, Nidalee, Akali, AP Ezreal, TF, and Yi are pretty much the only champions I could see it working on, and they have better builds, which will do more damage off the bat and even more since you get more pen from single-pen marks.

Add Jax, Teemo, Evelynn, Fizz, and maybe Yorick to the list.

on anyone that you are going to go magic resit per lvl glyph -spare 1 get one flat magic pen-

you now sacrifice only 1.66 magic pen + 1 mr per lvl glyph for 8.1 armor pen

NOW its totally worth it.

You basically need to consider who. AP champs that almost exclusively rely on their abilities should be running flat magic (assuming those abilities are doing magic damage) whereas hybrid is more applicable to "hybrid" damage, like jax.
