I personally see a few flaws that might happen with that type of setup
in a large environment, but nonetheless, it does sound pretty cool.

You can set bookmarks with the internal player when watching
recordings as mentioned before, so one would assume you could do the
same when watching DVD's ripped to Xvid with the internal player just
the same.  Something MythTV does with the video playback is allow you
to choose what you want to use to play back your files with, whether
it be the internal myth video player, mplayer (a very powerful media
player), xine, vlc (available for windows if you want to get
comfortable with it before making the move) or whatever.  Then you can
choose a player with 'bookmark' type capabilities like you describe,
or one that juggles silver balls across your screen when watching
DVD's of The Simpsons.  So in short, yeah you can, in long, it depends
on what choices you make.
