Hey christian, 

I've been thinking about this a bit lately. For the most part i think the 
default set of bookmarks in epiphany should be limited to "smart bookmarks," 
ones that can be used for searching from the location entry and bookmarks 
bar (users can bookmark their favorite news, stocks etc. sites themselves). 

Presumably sites like google are available in enough languages were 
translators could update the links to correspond to their respective 
locales. Obviously this approach does not scale well to large numbers of 
bookmarks, but in this case (i'm thinking of at most 3-5 and even that may 
be pushing it) would this be doable?
