The full list is not documented.  The reason it's not documented is because most 
front end tokens are still largely internal artifacts, subject to change, and 
not guaranteed to be absolutely stable (or crash-free) if used in the wrong way. 
I maintain a full-time job (and then some!) staying on top of the documented
features of the front end, so I hope you'll understand if I refrain from 
offering support/answers/advice/bug-fixes for undocumented features.

So, the list I've included at the end of this email should be considered an
unsupported goodie.  I offer it with no warranty, no documentation, and 
absolutely no promise of support from myself or Wolfram Research.  But, assuming 
you understand those preconditions, there's no reason for us to withhold the
list.  The list is comparatively complete, excepting option names (which can
also be used as tokens) and a few tokens I know to be in a nonfunctional state.

Here's one small and potentially useful note.  the MenuList tokens don't do
anything.  They're just menu placeholders.  Here's something interesting you can 
do with them...

DynamicModule[{font}, 
 Row[{PopupMenu[Dynamic[font], 
    FE`Evaluate[FEPrivate`GetPopupList["MenuListFonts"]]], Spacer[20],
    Style["The quick brown fox", 20, FontFamily -> font]}]]

FE`Evaluate[FEPrivate`GetPopupList[#]]& returns values appropriate for 
PopupMenu, and several FE interfaces take advantage of this, so it's unlikely to 
change in the future (although I wouldn't be surprised if such useful 
functionality makes its way into much simpler a top-level function some day).
