To the extent that some of the stuff in Bookmark+
were to be integrated into vanilla bookmark.el, I
wouldn't need to include it anymore in Bookmark+
(except for older Emacs releases).  IOW, a plus
for me, in terms of Bookmark+ maintenance.

A more important reason for others is that (IMHO)
the Bookmark+ versions of overlapping features are
generally better than the vanilla versions.

And there are a lot more features, many of which
could be added to vanilla bookmark.el with little
trouble, I expect.

I'm not volunteering to help with any such
integration (I haven't the time, energy, or will),
but I'd be happy to help with understanding the
Bookmark+ code if someone did try to integrate
some of the functionality.
