Manage Bookmarks in a standalone application

Using arc engine 9.3.1. with .net in a standalone application, and attempting to manage bookmarks separate from the map document with little success.  Based on one of the examples I was able to save/restore a single AOIBookmark using serialization and IXMLPersistedObject, but I haven't been able to get it to work for a list of bookmarks.

Most of the documentation seems to say just save to the map document but that's not a good solution for me, since I want to update my map document without losing an individual user's bookmarks.  I'm playing around with using a separate map document for storing bookmarks only and can probably make it work, but it seems like there should be a better way!

Any experiences or suggestions?  Thanks in advance.
