Comment (by cypherpunks):

 I'm not convinced that disabling bookmark backups is a good idea, but it
 might make sense to reduce the number of backups that are kept by default.
 It is entirely possible that the SQLite database can get corrupted, and if
 you're not manually backing up your bookmarks, you'd lose of all of them.

 Tying this to private browsing mode doesn't make any sense to me, because
 bookmarks are kept regardless of this setting.
