The ability to create bookmarks from an input feature class with the option of a buffer distance (specifically for point features).

Why should I click on each feature to create the bookmark?

The ability to create a polygon feature class of the extent of bookmarks - the ability to select the whole list or only certain bookmarks.

Would be useful for data-driven pages (DDP) use.

Ideally, I'd like to see a GP-toolbox for spatial bookmarks with above functions.

Would be great to auto create a series of bookmarks in an MXD based on the extent of selected polygon features in the map, or by passing the tool a polygon layer.   Maybe this can already be done?
Depending on what you wanted to do with them, you could probably do something with Data Driven Pages as a work around.
good idea for helping create data driven pages. espcially for those who are scared of python codes!
This is an older idea, but still a very good one. Even being able to create bookmarks from a feature class via arcpy mp would be awesome. A tool would be even better. I was looking for a way to do this today and there doesn't seem to be one.
