Your question revolves around the idea of making Ajax routines accessible, both to spiders and to real people who may not have full use of everything a browser can do. And the answer to your question is a big old It Depends. If the jQuery is built to be accessible, there are no SEO downsides to using it. If it's not, you're effectively hiding a lot of your content.
The keywords that will help you look deeper into the subject are HiJax and Progressive Enhancement. As soon as you start looking into those you're going to quickly run into the writings of Jeremy Keith, who besides penning books about DOM scripting has also authored a book entitled Bulletproof Ajax: Designing Interactive and Usable Ajax Solutions.
The principle is simple. Plan for Ajax from the beginning. Implement it at the end.
If you're a coder the book is a cheap way to get up to speed in a hurry. It contains both the methodology and code snippets. Or if you don't feel like buying a book, there is plenty of discussion out there on the web.

If it's done in a manner that supports usability/accessibility, which will also be good for the search engines, should natively support good bookmarking.
