We are not going to reserve words simply because they are reserved in
the standard.  We go out of our way to make words as "little reserved"
as possible; words that we are not even using in the grammar don't have
to be reserved at all.

For future reference, the patch as proposed is broken anyway because it
doesn't add the keywords to the appropriate list in gram.y.
