Still doesn't look right to me:

 "where each BOOKMARK is typically of the form

  (\(filename . FILE\)
   \(front-context-string . FRONT-STR\)
   \(rear-context-string  . REAR-STR\)
   \(position . POS\)
   \(annotation . ANNOTATION\)\))

 So the cdr of each bookmark is an alist too."

Aside from the unnecessary \'s (not a problem, but harder to read the code), the
last sentence is misleading (and unnecessary). The cdr of each bookmark is a
singleton list whose element is an alist.

And what I said about the code comment still holds:
