You are reinventing (part of) what bookmarks do.

If you don't want to have to name bookmarks for this, then you can use 
autonamed bookmarks:


(Single key to set, single key to jump to.)

For that you need Bookmark+, but as an alternative you can just define a 
bookmark-setting command that provides default names of your own design.

Rolling your own thingies which are essentially just bookmarks (and using a 
database to store them, no less) is really not necessary. It may be fun to do, 
but Emacs already has what you describe, as bookmarks.
