Not sure what's the original purpose, but this is how I use tokens:

After importing a new set of photos, say birthday photos of a friend,
I go through them in viewer. I press D for each photo that will be
deleted. R for every photo I'm in, and so on, basically I add a token
for each person I want to tag in those photos. Then I search all
photos with D token, delete those, select all with R, add myself as a
tag in those photos etc. This way I get all people tagged by going
through them once in viewer (being able to see them full screen is
nice ;) and then I make one search for token + tag round for each
token I used.

Now that I write it here it doesn't seem to make much sense..
