The only reasons I can think to retain the declaration (rather than  
having it be lazy) would be that (1) it's easier for a human to find  
the token and (2) it's easier to ensure that you're using the same  
token in all cases where you think you are.  (The compiler/parser/ 
translator can just make two passes...)
