This is typically what I would not want. Considering a feature OK 
because the developers can disable it is not OK.

I can also keep it in with a no-gui pref with the idea that the display 
helps to see bookmark bugs. But I lean towards just reverting the thing 
and marking the bug wontfix. I am not a bookmark user myself.

So people, if you have thoughts about visible bookmarks, please chime in.
