Arch taglines are purely for Arch's benefit.  These keywords would be
like their RCS equivalents---they'd show the relative pathname, and
could contain other bits of useful information too.  So they might be
easier to push on developers who don't care about Arch, and if they
were present, you could reasonably expect other developers to grok
what they were and to leave them alone.

Would those advantages be sufficient?  I doubt it---I suspect the
performance hit makes the idea unworkable for such a small benefit.
