I don't agree with this at all.  In fact, for me it is just the opposite
-- bookmarks are items I've studied or reviewed in some way, and want a
way to track them for the indefinite future.  A verse list is just
something transient, often something that came out of a recent search,
and I'll work with them for the next half hour or the next half day, and
then they'll be gone.

As DM just said, as an implementation structure, they're the same
thing.  It's a matter of the metaphor by which they're presented.
