For tokens, there are really only two answers that matter:

* does ID==X exist?  * has ID==X been revoked?

I think as long as you have a separate container for revocations and
tokens, then resurrections would be fine. The records themselves would
be immutable so edits aren't a problem.

It would, however, be bad to get a 404 for something that is otherwise
present.. as that will result in an erroneous failure for the client.
