"Act as if" is all over the spec. I prefer writing the spec that way because if
I ever change what happens at the other end, I have to go and fix a bazillion
places that refer to it. What is unclear? What are the various options that you
think it might mean?

(In my implementation, "act as if a token was seen" literally just re-entrantly
invokes the tree construction step with a fake token.)
