I think I agree with you here. And I think it would be fine to define
these in l3toks for lack of any better location (they're not necessary
"early", so it doesn't really matter, I suppose; since they're token
registers then putting them in toks makes sense).

Again, I agree; packages like galley2 (in the case of \everypar) might
well provide higher level interfaces and we don't need to do that on
the lower level of expl3.
