What about renaming a bookmark and going to a bookmark ? Maybe you are
suggesting it won't be possible to go to a bookmark from the dialog,
only from the Bookmarks menu, while clicking on the bookmark name in
the dialog will edit it?

It might be better without an editor. It's 2 extra clicks for every
bookmark removed -- activate bookmarks menu, select bookmark from the
menu, select "remove" from the menu (or from the tool bar) -- compared
to with the editor -- activate bookmarks menu (once), select Edit
Bookmarks (once), select bookmark, press Remove, close editor (once).
But also renaming a bookmark will have to be done by removing it and
adding one with a new name.
