Lack of programmatic permalinks

It does not seem possible to obtain the Bookmark ID as a return value when adding a bookmark via the API, thus unclear how to automatically create permalinks to POSSEd posts. This means it isn't possible to add a u-syndication link to the syndicated copy on the original post.
