I undecided on this, too. Automagically working on marked entries should
they exists seems more natural to me but you are right more dangerous,
too. So I'm perfectly with you except that I'd say that marked entries
should be unmarked after the action. But anyway, triggering bulk actions
with a special command appears absolutely fine to me.
