No, there isn't.

But you could write a function or handler that returns a list of the
number of the marked cards
and step through that list. OK, is not the same ;-)
repeat for each item i in it
doThis of cd 1
doThat of cd i
## not really necessary to GO to the marked cd.
put the num of cds into nc
repeat with i = 1 to nc
if the mark of cd i then
put i & "," after mklist
delete char -1 of mklist
You get the picture .-)

You mean something like:
go card "the one with a preopencard handler"
## messages will be unlocked automatically after the handler is finished
