It's a matter of checking the current keywords against a list of
keywords that are known to be good. `finder-known-keywords' is a good
start for such a list.

I've provided a command that a package developer can voluntarily call to
make sure that the keywords he chose are sound.  It is for the benefit
of all users if >2000 known packages can be organized by a smallish list
of keywords, with no redundant synonyms, typos etc.  If a package author
doesn't want to conform to the keyword guidelines that I propose to
recommend, fine: it's just a recommendation.
