At a minimum, it’s useful to provide a list of “suggested keywords” that people can choose from when tagging their packages so there’s at least a common terminology to search within.

Do you mean to require something more than that?  E.g. “packages submitted to the ‘bro’ package source MUST NOT use keywords outside the pre-approved list” ?  Or “packages submitted to the ‘bro’ package source MUST contain at least one keyword tag” ?
