Yes, it should run on this case. And it currently works just fine for
me (at least with version 4.4). However, I am quite certain it did not
work 15 minutes ago for me.

I'll keep this in mind. For the tokens I even thought that lower case
letter could stack the selected image, capital letter the whole stack.
How does that sound? (I am not sure at all how easy these are to
implement in the Viewer, but at least ability to annotate the whole
stack from the viewer would speed up my workflow.)
