I'm not sure if I understand how its going to be handled...
At this time, the Last Page Read and other annotation information are added to the Comments field in the database, and a copy of the bookmark file is archived in the database. 0.6.46 will also archive 'My Clippings.txt'.

The information is used when generating a Catalog. The 'Recently Read' Section shows reading progress graphically. I use it to see to get a quick overview of what I've been reading in the last month.

At this time, the utility is mostly informational, plus archival. The long-term vision is that it will be possible to edit the metadata on a book and automatically migrate the bookmarks/annotations on the device. This will require some architectural changes which are underway, but it will be some time before this feature is implemented.
