Only those intended to be discoverable should be listed there. Some  
aren't, Bookmarks being one of them.

I'm not sure what you mean here - XEP-0115 doesn't use alphabetical  
ordering anyway, and is very clear on how things should be ordered.  
This is just as well, because "alphabetical order" is not a constant.  
(Try living in my area, where there are at least three alphabetical  
orders in use.)

Hence we instead pick "i;octet", which avoids the entire issue, and  
happens to look a bit like alphabetical ordering to Americans.

Not sure what you mean here.
