is this needed at all? When accessing a bookmark (regardless if
reading or writing it) the disc needs to spin up anyway, so the
tracking information could be written during that spinup in the first

Besides, as I mentioned at DevCon IMO bookmarks should be merged in
some way with playlists. And we need to store the last position in the
dynamic playlist upon shutdown too, so ...
