I don't really see the value of them.  They add some marginal
documentation I suppose, but they also make the grammar bigger and
slower.  A more substantial objection to the practice is that it can
introduce needless shift/reduce conflicts, by forcing the parser into
making unnecessary decisions before it has enough context to
determine what kind of name a particular token really is.

(I don't claim that your patch as it stands has any such problem,
because it doesn't touch any particularly hairy parts of the grammar.
I'm just saying why I don't necessarily believe in a separate production
for every kind of name.)
