They're not pre-added to the bookmark DB because that makes life difficult for syncing and icon management. But we do want users to be able to delete them.

1.1 seems like a good target for this; we already have UI for bookmark deletion, so no string work.

Also, they're not added because they're the empty state. If we allow deleting them, that implies you can get back to a new empty state, which we don't have designed.

Robin and I discussed this today. We don't think this is a good thing to do, particularly given that it requires either building a second deletion mechanism (bad) or adding the defaults to the DB (also bad).

If users use bookmarks, the defaults will be pushed down the list. If they don't, they won't see the defaults.
