Unfortunately, the interpretation in this case is being done by
humans.  That means that there's enough room for an elephant, let
alone misinterpretation.  Really, Drew is right.  Just choose a
different field name and write the necessary functions to use it, and
see what happens.  I don't think you're likely to get good results,
but who knows?  If you do, and there's demand for merging that
functionality with finder, it won't be hard.  But untangling the two
features if you start by hijacking finder and the Keywords header will
be very difficult, because people will be used to using it that way.
