I don't know if it matches your requirements but I am about to add a 
"views" system in the Cartoweb CVS version (see cartowb.org download 

Views are recordings at a given time of the map state (map extent, 
layers selections, queried objects, outline/annotations, etc.). In other 
words, a kind of bookmarks. Data are written either in files or DB.

Note that it does not write anything on the Mapserver side (the geodata 
are unaffected). It only saves stuff on the Cartoclient side enabling it 
to rebuild later the corresponding requests.
