Bookmark and doc nav improvements wishlist

I work with around 60 files in daily workflows - I'm active in many of them in one session, surfing around, gathering notes and passages into new documents.
I won't go into a preference for tabs, presuming that's well-trodden ground. Instead, I show the bookmark bar and frequently update bookmarks.
Some ideas and requests:
An ability, possibly via workflow step, to Go Back to the last open doc
- hopefully the position in the last couple docs could be preserved, so I don't have to constantly scroll back to where I was
After opening a doc, ability to enter editing mode via a keyboard shortcut
- also to enter editing mode in workflow, after a doc is opened
Ability to arrow/page through a doc after opening
Don't have file extensions in bookmark Set Bookmark Target (I'm always deleting '.txt' off the end, to save space)
When holding a bookmark in the bar, don't need the Edit Bookmark / Delete Bookmark first choice - since the Edit panel already has Delete function
Lastly a wild-card request:
I love the Arrange side bar. But I write in short paragraphs and stanzas. Thus I've written workflows to combine those into gross-looking single lines, so I can drag elements around. (Folding hides most of the text.)
What I'd really love is for the Arrange bar to be programmable. I want to tell the bar to split by '\n\n' (rather than the current '\n').
For further bonus points, if would be great to long hold on the arrange bar to Copy the current selection and maybe even send to another doc. Then much of the need for doc jumping goes away.
