Subject: Re: [wsrp-interfaces] Implementation question

Since bookmarkability is a consumer side issue, isn't it the consumer's 
problem to decide lifetime and support some kind of persistence in 
whatever manner feasible? In any case, the producer is free to ignore 
the navState in a future getMarkup request.

Can you elaborate why we need a new flag from the producer to determine 
the lifetime?
