Any real benefit of adding this keyword in the info file?

Currently, we store the keywords in the database so that it could be
used for searching purpose and easily modified without having to submit
a new package just to change the keywords.

Also, i personally disagree to use info file to store all the keywords,
since it would mean more checking during approval since a single mistake
in the .info files could cause some problem during public update.
