How would bookmarks simplify the solutions to the problems you posed 
earlier, e.g. grouping into threes? Why would bookmarks stop you from 
getting into the same problem of having to specify lots of different 
conditions to stop a set? I think that the flexibility required means 
these are inherent in the problem. The trick then is simplifying from 
the author's point of view.

I have to say bookmarks make me think of goto and that's giving me a 
nasty taste. If the ordering changed you could land in a mess. With a 
grouping function, if some expected markup went missing, it could at 
least know to end a set if it wanted to start a new one, would this be 
possible with bookmarks?
