Not yet, but me and Peter keep talking about it.  Making it is just a
larger version of the existing code that generates the Index at the
end of each spec.

As Peter said, there's no problem with reusing keywords in different
contexts.  Bikeshed, the spec editting tool we use, will tell you
about ambiguous references, but it's easy to specify which property or
context a given keyword is for.
