You can remove the keywords from "ox-org.el" and "ox-ascii.el", as they
do not use them. You need to update (info "(org)Publishing options")
accordingly, too.

I fail to see how it is "cool". KEYWORDS are meant to add contents to
meta-data, i.e., an area you cannot reach easily with regular Org
syntax. As a consequence, KEYWORDS doesn't mean much for back-ends not
supporting such meta-data.

If KEYWORDS are meant to be inserted in the buffer, then write them
using regular syntax, e.g.,

  Read my paper, please...

  Keywords-in-my-language: [[http://link-to-tag-cloud][org]]

We don't need a convoluted markup for that, let's keep it simple.
