Lightroom: Allow multiple keywords to be added using the Keyword Set tool

I would like to use the "Keyword set" panel to add multiple keywords at the same time. I tried to place "Son1" and "Son2" (well, the actual names of my kids, of course, but you get the idea) as "Son1, Son2" into an entry in the panel.

Unfortunately, this made Lightroom add the keyword "Son1, Son2" (including the comma) to the image.

However, I noticed that the Keyword Set EDITOR seems to treat the words as separate keywords, suggestion alternatives as a drop-down menu.

My suggestion is to extend the Keyword Set to allow it to add multiple keywords. Alternatively, flag entries containing comma-characters as erroneous.

FYI, you can do it with the Painter tool.

Allowing comma as both data and data separator seems wrong to me.

Dorin, I'm aware that the painter tool can do this. However, typically one photo is of me with Son1, the next contains both my sons, etc. Hence, modifying the painter tool (i.e. typing) for each combination of people is no easier than marking all photos containing the same people and typing in the keyword directly.
