I'm not sure I know precisely what you mean, but I'll weigh in anyway.

Sorry I didn't mention the application: My bookmark processor acts 
recursively. So if I've bookmarked your bookmark page, then I can get 
your bookmarks too. But it needs to know which items it should/could 
recurse on.

Yes, my other thought was to add a special "import_bookmark" tag, but 
that runs the risk of users accidentally using the tag, and it seems odd 
to use a tag as (effectively) a processing direction.

Ah, my whiteboard keeps a lot of secrets too.
