The easiest way is to insert the I manually and use the automatic
handling for the rest:
\score{
{\repeat unfold 8 {c'1 \mark \default | }
c' \mark \markup{\bold "I"}
\repeat unfold 18 {c'1 \mark \default | }}
}

Thank you for the patch.

Of course, it's also trivial to add a property includeI in the
implementation that handles your wish, but then we should maybe
look into something even more flexible. For example, some
publishers exclude "J" instead of "I". Also, I have seen some
scores printed in Sweden that actually use also the letter "Å"
"Ä" and "Ö" are rearsal letters. The most flexible solution is
probably to add a property where you can add a list of the letters
to be used (in Unicode, to support all languages).

Lists of letters sounds fine to me. And a set of standard lists, selectable by
\mark \<letter-list-name>.
