Let's not do that; as Robin pointed out...

"...there's no way to ensure immediate consistency of tokens across all
nodes, it's probably not worth the effort of making Cassandra "token
aware", since an application would have to provide fall-back logic to
authenticate with credentials, if the token fails.  So, tokens would
probably just add complexity without much benefit."
