The advantage of a simple option like

  (setq find-file-history '(bookmark dired))

is that users are likely to set it once and for all.

With two history variables and a way to access them separately or
together (e.g. depending on a toggle command in the minibuffer?), the
users may wonder which one they are currently accessing, overloading
their minds for this frequently used command...

Or at least, there should be an option to always search through the
extended history if that's the default behavior we want.
