I had considered this and it was part of my original idea to limit the number
of recognised words / phrases to a maximum of 5. That's more than enough to
position the document contextually and it'll prevent the abuse that keywords
suffered from.

e.g. You could have a page described as "Science, Research, Whitepaper,
Astro-physics;" OR "Technology, Web Design, HTML 5, Specification, Suggestion;"

Sorry for not stating that in my original comment.
