It would be nice if the keyword list could be locked so that we could still use it to assign keywords, but not modify the contents or structure, either directly or indirectly. This would stop mouse slips when assigning keywords, which seem to leave you with parts of the hierarchy moved to another part of the tree. When you want to add/delete/move a keyword, you'd simply unlock the list temporarily.

A related problem: It's too easy to create a new keyword accidentally by mis-typing.

Both these could be handled by an option that requires confirmation for changing keywords.
