I´ve got a lot of bookmarks which don´t show a name, or only something as useful
as "Untitled Document". If mozilla makes this up, it easily could be replaced
with something more meaningful. I would suggest the URL without http://www., 
and without tld and parameters, if length must be reduced.
Of course it will get weird, if you get a really long URI with a lot of
subdomains in it.

This is just the opposite of 
Bug 137904 [RFE] show bookmark name as document/window title

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
If I bookmark http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt, the bookmark name is set to
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt when filing the bookmark, if I make a html
page with no title specified, or empty title specified, the url is used as the
name, too. If the document has a title, and it is "Untitled Document" (and there
are plenty of those out there), I'm not sure anything else should be used
instead. Reporter, can you give some examples?

http://www.mozilla.org/owners.html was filed in my bookmarks Jan 4th, 2003,
without a name. Today I pulled it into another folder, and got the name owners.html.
This was filed 25.03.03 without a name, and today gives tods.htm
http://www.datenschutz.thueringen.de/tods.htm

Seems that I´ve missed the progress in bookmarks.htm.
I´ve searched 560 bookmarks bugs, and didn´t find this one, but didn´t check it
before posting. Recommend marking worksforme, fixed, invalid, or whatever.
