It's fine to add an optional ability to say "create a bookmark that will always
point to the eob/eof".  As one user, I disagree that creating a bookmark at eob
should automatically or by default create it as an always-go-to-eob-bookmark.

IOW, as an option, I don't have a problem with it, but it shouldn't be what
happens by default when you create a bookmark with point at eob.

I also wonder a bit, "Why?".  How hard is it to hit `M->' after jumping to a
bookmark?  Am I missing something wrt the use case?
