The stuff that's in that make-record function is only for EWW.
In Bookmark+, the make-record functions for other kinds of
bookmarks don't have such things.  They're specifically about
renaming the EWW buffer, etc.

So no, I don't think such things apply "in a uniform way for
all implementations" of a make-record function.  They're only
for EWW.

(BTW, there's nothing about "sessions" in the Bookmark+ code,
AFAIK; I haven't understood that part either, of your and
Marcin's messages.)

There is an Emacs Dev thread about this stuff.  See

Note that that thread was started by someone requesting to be
able to do, for EWW, some of the kinds of things that Bookmark+

And this part of that thread speaks to the use of EWW "bookmarks"
versus regular bookmarks, and to the use of different make-record
functions for different kinds of bookmarks:

'Nuff said.  I'm not pushing anyone to use code similar to what
I offered.  My point is that those particular features were
added specifically for use with EWW - they're not Bookmark+
features used for any other kinds of bookmarks.  The latter kind
of feature I didn't provide the code for here, though such things
(e.g. tags) were requested in the original Emacs Dev thread.  I
didn't provide them in the code I offered here because they do
require more of Bookmark+.
