It can come into play when we talk about phrases, I think -- 
a phrase being an ordered sequence of tokens. However, I believe that
non-determinism doesn't matter in practice, because phrase matching
is implementation-dependent anyhow, and we want to allow implementations
to come to their own conclusions about matching overlapping tokens in
such cases (cf the Dampfschiffmumble example)
