I agree with the desirability to typeset entries with any font and even for 
typeset entries; however, I don't believe there are any future plans for
expanding the current bookmark feature list.

The color feature can be more than cosmetic.  One can color code the entries: 
Black (or some other color) for a jump within the current document; brown
(or something) for a jump to another document.  Red (or something) for a entry
that performs some action (for example JavaScript).
