Dear Niels,

If you 'swap tokens', you cannot be sure that the other party has not or
will not spend the token themselves. Thus, you can only barter tokens
with trusted parties (like within your family or commune). Not having
taxability for such non-commercial transactions is something we find
acceptable (if not desirable).

We'll consider adding this to the FAQ...
