We could approach this in the same way we go about sections: allow
maintainers to make a suggestion, the final decision lies with a small,
dedicated "keyword-master" team. Miscategorisation can be rectified by
appealing to them through bugging a pseudopackage.

I don't think this team needs to be equal to the ftp-masters.

To give the keyword-masters more leeway in how they dedicate their
time without stalling new packages, these could go into unstable
uncategorised (or under the maintainer-suggested keywords). Packages
shouldn't be allowed into testing without approved keywords.

BTW, why is the categorical browser not advertised in big neon signs?
I managed to miss this feature through months of using aptitude!
