For people having to use their 'tactical prowess' again instead of having to warp down the checklist.

You know, let's think about it for a second.

Crap in space does, in fact, move, orbit and spin. But said orbits and spins, unless affected by a mighty big ol' rock that hits the poor planet, are predictable and a good computer is perfectly capable of translating coordinates so that while in absolute vastness of space your bookmark may change, the relative position won't. Everything remains constant, even the direction of warping from a bookmark to a celestial/gate. And yes, that direction is often very important.

So there's your realism behind it not being done.

We could use making things spin and rotate from a "hey look, it looks cool" point of view though. Everything is better with spinning. I mean, look at the Naglfar: it lost 50 pimp-points for the fact that its solar panels don't spin anymore.
