Well, what I do often is when I "a" the link to the
bookmark file, I will MODIFY the "title" of the thing,
either appending eg "(TREE OF GOOD LINKS)", or
changing it althgether.  So the sort -u won't work
for me so well.

So, with my OWN program, I can sort the file whatever
way I want.  You have no idea what I might want to
do with it.  Just like how a developer usually gets
totally surprised by what uses customers make of
his software -- things he never thought of, things he
never intended.  POWER TO THE USER -- let him/her do
what he/she/it wants, whatever fancy hits the mind.
