Yes, if one has a sheet local name and copies the sheet or parts thereof
s/he expects the same structure.

Yes, that is independent from each other.

Maybe that's due to some confusion when ScToken is actually used instead
of the types provided in formula/*. The general formula/* implementation
handles everything that doesn't need to access the document model or
know about application details, ScToken derivates implement spreadsheet
specific parts that need to know about addressing and such or use Calc
data types.

Actually the new ScNameToken implemented would belong to formula/*
instead, but there is already FormulaIndexToken, which also now has
changes for local/global names, so ScNameToken is superfluous and can be
removed. ScRawToken::CreateToken() needs to be changed back to return
a FormulaIndexToken.

Always good.
