Since bookmark.el is conceptually more low-level than desktop.el,
the latter could use a subset of services provided by bookmarks.

There is one problem of using bookmark records for desktop.el.
Some bookmarks take too much time to restore when reading from the desktop
file.  So packages will need to distinguish between making a bookmark for
bookmark.el or desktop.el to not save some bookmarks in the desktop file.
Maybe `bookmark-make-record-function' will require a new argument for that.
