Keywords need to be quoted, too.
This does not work (syntax error)
    include tag
while this works:
    include "tag"

What got me thinking about this: Is that sentence supposed to describe
quoting rules for the "include" keyword (I'm reading it that way) or
should it apply to the whole pf.conf grammar?

I think it should apply to the whole grammar:
This does not work (syntax error)
    pass in tag tag
    pass in tag /foo
while this works:
    pass in tag "tag"
    pass in tag "/foo"

One other thing: Are you aiming for an exhaustive list of things that
need to quoted? For example at first I thought that spaces need to be
quoted, it turns out that assumption was wrong, this works:
    pass in tag foo bar

I don't know if your sentence + something about keywords would be an
exhaustive list.
