Not so good, in my opinion.  From "DocBook: The Definitive Guide 2.0.10 

    A Token identifies a unit of information. Usually, “tokens” are the result
    of some processing pass that has performed lexical analysis and divided a
    data set into the smallest units of information used for subsequent

So token elements in DocBook are mostly for tokens which are output by a 
lexer.  These cover reserved words but cover also several other kinds of 
data.  That's why I think that the token element is not so appropriate.
