Okay, if we're all putting in requests for our pet feature in the XBEL 
DTD I have one too: I'd like an empty ("pass", in Python terms)
element, with only an id attribute.

With this it should be possible to do two-way-syncing of bookmark
files between machines. If each machine generates IDs in a unique
manner, and replaces items (or folders or whatever) with the pass item 
when you delete them you win something important: on the next sync you 
can differentiate between the situation where the bookmark was deleted 
on machine A or added on machine B.
