If a solution doesn't pop up and you feel like writing your own (for mozilla):

1) Mozilla talks to LDAP
2) All Mozilla UI is written in XUL
3) You can write your own Mozilla "components" in XUL

I can see two approaches maybe.  Using a script on the server
(web accessable) to produce a RDF datasource file that
your XUL component can access directly. (this would likely be
for read-only bookmark access).
Interface with ldap directly stealing from code that talks to LDAP
contact entries.

If intersted read up on XUL here:
