I don't see anything wrong with adding bookmarks to the Open Location

I don't think this would be as practical as having the bookmarks on the
Open Location dialog. You'd still have to click on the "Show Desktop"
button, open the bookmarks folder on the desktop, and then, finally,
open the desired location (one click and two double-clicks), as opposed
to probably just Control-L and 1 double-click on the desired
location. It also clutters the desktop.

While bookmarks might not have a relation to the represented folder,
having Places in spacial windows is really handy and useful, and will be
even more when you can put whatever you want in that menu. This allows
to open arbitrary locations with a single click. Beats the alternatives.
