Your function (above) needs an extra cons but now it works:

  (defun my-add-keyword (word) 
      (font-lock-add-keywords nil (cons (cons word font-lock-warning-face) 
'(t))))

Thanks for pointing out the obvious, although I enjoyed cobbling
together my macro kludge.  I can't believe it didn't occur to me to
use cons.  I suppose it's because I'm thinking macros generally at the
moment, and hell... why use a simple cons or two, when you can write a
complicated macro!
