Counting the keywords entered rather than those being exported is useless for any serious stock photographer. I'm surprised this hasn't been addressed already by Adobe.

Agreed, while having a keyword counter show up when entering keywords is great, it doesn't at all help if you have a tree keyword hierarchy as not all the keywords that are going to be added to the final image are shown in the Enter Keywords view. 

As a stock photographer, I need to know when I hit the 50 keyword limit for those keywords that will export with the image. It is critical for most stock agency submissions. Please show the applied keyword count when hovering over the Keyword Tags box with the Will Export option selected in the Keyword Tags dropdown.
