I do not beleive in a central effort coding wise. As Dries points out, there's 
too much to do when centralising such an effort. 

What I /do/ beleive will be a great improvement is p2p sharing of the filtered 
tokens, regexps et al. I discuseed this on IRC lately, and Morbus had some 
great ideas on this.

First of all it should be shared over a closed XML feed. 
We can use drupalIds and a special role to secure the ahraing (we dont want 
spammers to learn from our tokens).
Both peers need to confirm sharing.
If I remove something on my side, the XML feed must dictate (or propose) 
deletion on the other sides too. Otherwise it would be an ever growing blob.
