Actually, I hardly ever open a bookmark file, other than for testing
purposes. :)

Possibly. It's been like that since the start (9+ years)...

Those files are only visible if you have set the show files setting to
supported or all. And since they aren't necessarily shown next to the
directory, they can be easy to overlook.

That would be a pretty big change for me.

It would affect me negatively, at least. And I guess I wouldn't be alone...
However, an extra bookmarking autoload option wouldn't affect users of the
menu, and would allow you to tweak the bookmark selection list behavior to
match your bookmarking usage.
