That should be the same as this:

if ((tok))
AfterProc:
    {}

It's not particularly useful, but what's wrong with it?

It's the same as that, yes, but there is no actual statement, nor are there any curly brackets to denote an empty statement was intended. I believe that if the behaviour was actually intended, the curly brackets should be required, and that this form should produce an error.

> but there is no actual statement

There is, it's called a `LabeledStatement` in the grammar.
