"carpet" of bookmarks and sessions ("inside" tabs and windows)

This may be purely linguistical, but what are exactly sessions? This is one
of the features in which Opera was unique. Each session is a group of web
pages, it can be auto-saved (useful after a crash and for consistency of
information) or it can be saved by users. But looking at it, why is a
session different from a group of webpages inside a "carpet" of the
bookmarks library? Isn't that redundant?

Firefox has a feature that (as of this writting) isn't implemented in Opera:
save all open webpages (the tabs in a window). Isn't this basically the same
as saving a session?
