Well, it must be possible, 'cuz I think Apple Mail does it.
Cheap workaround: If a token is dragged into a field, and you notice
that the token occurs only in one other field, of the same basic type,
you can just remove it from that field and be right 99% of the time. Do
this only if option wasn't down for the drag and it'll look like you're
moving-or-copying the way people expect that to work, I think?
More generally, you could have a preference with a name like "only allow
a given address once in recipient fields". At that point, adding an
address to a field implicity removes it from all others. In practice we
probably want that anyway.
