Have you checked for and filed if it doesn't exist, a bug on that?

The bookmarks file is $KDEHOME/share/apps/konqueror/bookmarks.xml (where 
$KDEHOME is ~/.kde if unset, as shipped, tho some distributions make it 
~/.kde4 or the like).  To my in-expert eye at least, it looks to be a 
pretty standard xml file.  Thus, it should be (sort of) editable in a 
standard text editor, and more editable in an editor designed for xml 

I'm guessing that any generic bookmarks xml file editor, likely including 
the mozilla bookmark editors (well, unless firefox and seamonkey are all 
database based now, they /used/ to be a normal xml file) should handle it 
quite well.

Similarly, as the format's reasonably standard, there should be quite a 
number of import/export apps for it, least-wise for the various syncing 
and online bookmarking sites.
