One would also need some common locking,

But thinking about it that could be a favorable solution.
Instead of handling each entry separately through D-BUS, why not have a D-BUS 
service which sends signals upon changes of shared files and also issues 
writing leases.

The bookmark using applications would just read the shared file when they 
start or when it changes and would request a writing lease before writing to 

This way you can use the same technique for all data that is already stored in 
very common formats, like vcard or vcalendar, etc
