I haven't picked up 1.3 yet so I can't verify whether this has changed,
but in 1.2 you can specify the token's value as a property (ie., in your
example, you could do value="${year}"). I definitely wouldn't want that to
go away, and in fact, I'd like to see it expanded so that you can do that
from a filters file as well, since not being able to seems inconsistent,
and makes using a filters file far less useful.
