OK, but "mark parts" to do what with them? To control data entry?

Yes, there's an obvious problem when developers feel the need to use
bookmarks to do some of this stuff. I'm just unclear on what the
distinction is between this field you are proposing and
text:meta-field. For example, I hope/expect that citations (which
Zotero typically uses bookmarks to implement in OOo) will be
implemented using text:meta-field. So how would we -- or third-party
devs -- know which one to use for which cases?
