I continue to feel that this isn't a recommendation we should make.  It would be interesting fodder for browser extension developers, but even then, our shared bookmarks contain specific research around security scoring in primary UI and have found it to be non-helpful in preventing attack.  If the intent of this recommendation is not to prevent attack, then we should be clear about what the intent *is* because I don't think it provides helpful context on its own outside of attack resistance.
