I do not believe this is adequately addressed.

- meta/@name=keywords is in HTML 4

- search engine documentation implies it is used

So it appears that the burden of proof is on those who want it to be removed.

If we have solid research that shows that this is harmful (in that's it's
almost always ignored, and usually used for spam), then the spec actually
should include it and explain the problem.
