That's fair. So long as there's a path to change defaults if
maintainers are confident about it, then I have no concerns.

As for the feature itself, I'd probably opt in to it, since I only
lightly use bookmarks, and having it work more like dired would reduce
confusion for me. If some version of this patch merges, I'll be sure
to provide feedback if I notice any hiccups.
