It simplifies the scanner, because a token can be easily identified. Depending
on the direction in which the linker develops there might also be ambiguities
in the future. Such "names" do for example forbid the use of C style hex
numbers ("0x000"). At least as long as the language used in the config file is
not context sensitive.
