I'm not actually running beagle yet, so I'm guessing here that you mean
which icon to display, the one for web history or the one for bookmarks.
IMHO, the fact that those exist is a problem. It should be an icon for
a webpage. I really don't care so much whether it got found in my
bookmarks or in my history, I'm just interested in results relevant to
my search.

dashboard used an emblem to show that an url type result came from the
bookmarks backend. That mechanism could be used if people are really
attached to seeing where their results originated from, but I still
maintain it isn't interesting information.
