HTTPbis describes the production as:

"The "b64token" syntax allows the 66 unreserved URI characters 
([RFC3986]), plus a few others, so that it can hold a base64, base64url 
(URL and filename safe alphabet), base32, or base16 (hex) encoding, with 
or without padding, but excluding whitespace ([RFC4648])." -- 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p7-auth-20.html#rfc.section.2.1.p.4>

I think that's sufficiently clear, and "b64token" is actually a good 
name for that ABNF production.

Best regards, Julian
