I am not sure we should go this way. At least the file would have to be
more complex than it is at the moment.
ASTNode.Type.getTypeFor is used to recognized mathML names,
ASTNodeTokens.xml is used to read infix formula in the SBML level 1 style.
So you would have to have two keys in the XML files for the two usage as
some names are different.
Also the current file could be use to detect the valid SBML level 1
formula. We could also add an other attribute to say if the entry is
valid in L1 or not.
And as the current system is working quite well, I would prefer that any
changes be done after the long awaited first official stable release
that should come soon, at least before or around COMBINE 2011.
