in reply to Consider this: What makes a good node title?

Here's an idea which I'm not volunteering to implement (so you can safely ignore it :-)) - let's have an optional keyword field *in addition* to a title field. New users would see the field and perhaps think "oh, someone might want to search for this node". Instead of considering for retitling, picky other users could just add some keywords.

    I agree with that. One root of this discussion is that some people, like me, think that the main purpose of the title is to describe the node in a clear and unambiguous way, whereas others (such as sauoq) think that its main purpose is to be a source of keywords for searching. The best solution could well be to have a list of keywords independently from the title. But I'm not volunteering to implement it either. :-)
      Isn't all this already implemented? I could have sworn there was a keyword nodelet someplace.
