Well put.  "Links" is short and to the point,  unambiguous.  
"Bookmarks" sounds like a feature  that's somehow integrated with the  
browser, or aware of the author's personal collection of URLs. I  
would have to explain the concept of "Bookmarks" to clients almost as  
much as I have to explain the current "Blogroll." "Links" would  
require little or no explanation. It is what it says it is.  I don't  
get the appeal of "Bookmarks" at all. Why create needless confusion?
