I don't think I want to change anything there. Should work exactly as
it works now.

The tag index version that is "sorted by tag" already looks more or
less like an keyword index. And the tag cloud is a useful way to
search subsets of pages.

I think keywords are similar to tags in the sense that they provide a
context as well for a page. Or alternatively they can be though of as
a very short summary of the page topic. But I often see people use
tags in the same way, basically making a single line description where
each word is a tag like "@email (about) @zim @tags". Of course you are
still free to put these keywords on a separate line before or after
the main text.
