Just to chime in with another scenario, suggesting why automatically 
deleting the bookmark at the end of a recording would be bad: I have 
bookmarks set at specific points in my kid's favorite shows, which he 
watches over and over again. Sometimes, we'll all leave the room and 
playback will stop only when it hits the end of the file. If the 
bookmark was deleted, that would get to be pretty annoying.

So, anyway, it sounds like the currently proposed solution will work 
just fine for me.
