Not sure whether this is the most elegant option, but you could solve
this via a small ipelet:

-- bookmark.lua ------------------------------------------------------

label = "Bookmarks"

local visible = false;

function toggle_bookmarks(model)
   visible = not visible
   model.ui:showTool("bookmarks", visible)

methods = {
  { label = "toggle bookmarks", run=toggle_bookmarks },


Then you can define the shortcut in the customization file like so:
shortcuts.ipelet_1_bookmark = "Ctrl+Alt+b"

Two additional comments:

- I'm not sure how to check whether the bookmarks are currently
  visible. So the above solution will not know when you have changed the
  state via the ui and will potentially not toggle once (e.g., it tries
  to hide although it is already hidden). From the
  MODEL:action_toggle_bookmarks() method, it looks like one should be
  able to get the current state via something like
  self.ui:actionState("toggle_bookmarks") but I did not get this to

- Also I am not sure what the model:setBookmarks() call is there for (I
  just copied it from the MODEL:action_toggle_bookmarks() method).
