I know that I am late joining this conversation but ...

You refer to keywords in Algol 68. Algol 58 (which Algol 60, Coral 66, Algol 68 (R and S), Algol W etc were derived from) just had tokens, as you state. The characters or symbols used to create tokens were an implementation issue, not a design issue. The standards used letter sequences to indicate the uses of the tokens (e.g. begin, end and if) but that was purely for typographic reasons for the specification and did not define how they were to be entered. The version of Algol 60 that I used (ICL 1900) used quoted strings (e.g. 'BEGIN', 'END', 'IF'). The use of braces in C to represent begin and end would have been perfectly acceptable implementations. Some of the uses of (, ), ? and : in Algol 68 were valid actualisations of the begin, end, then and else keywords. I liked the Algol 68 mirror image brackets e.g. ( and ), [ and ], CASE and ESAC, IF and FI; especially as you could also use COMMENT and TNEMMOC.

You may have noticed that all of the keywords (not tokens) above are all in uppercase - that is because I worked on 6-bit character machines and lowercase did not exist.
