For vanilla Emacs bookmarks (I guess you spoke of bookmark+ bookmarks),
this is not true: I tried to use `bookmark-file' as a file local
variable - this has no effect.  Then I tried with
`bookmark-default-file' as file local variable - this is also ignored
unless you bind `bookmark-bookmarks-timestamp' to nil in addition.
While this finally worked and I could use a file-local bookmark file, my
real bookmark file got erased in the process...

I learned that authors of the vanilla bookmark code didn't intend to
support using multiple bookmark files like this.


Michael.
