It's not treated any differently than any other values in HTML4. I don't think
I've ever even looked at the list of what values HTML4 defines since starting
work on HTML5.

This has nothing to do with ideology (what ideology?). HTML5 was written from
scratch.

We could move the three definitions in the HTML5 spec to another spec, but they
are all significantly more useful than "keywords", so there are stronger
reasons to keep them in the spec. For instance, "generator" affects the
behaviour of validators, "application-name" has normative conformance criteria
for UAs, and "description" is actually used by all manner of UAs.

Since the only reason you have provided for defining this feature is that some
other document once defined it, I haven't added it. Please reopen the bug if
there are more compelling reasons.
