LIGHTROOM - Option of mutually exclusive keyword tags

Just a small idea for a future version of lightroom.

I separate my tags into different categories. Some of these categories contain terms which are mutually exclusive from one another. It would be great if there was a toggle option allowing for grouped keywords to exclude others once one is selected. Then in areas such as the 'keyword suggestions' as soon as one from the category is applied to the photo, all others from that category are not suggested. This would save a lot of time in massive tagging sessions.

For example:
Countries - if England is applied, then it wouldn't offer Belgium or Croatia as possibilities
Dates - if 2015 is tagged, then don't suggest 2014
Photographer - if 'photographerabc' is selected, it can't be 'photographerxyz'

I'm sure others would have similar groups - inside/outside; commercial/personal; a list of events/shoots.

I personally would be open to whether this just applied to keyword suggestions (and still allowed manual input of two opposing tags), or whether this was enforced (ie, it wouldn't allow two opposing tags at all), or whether it flagged up a warning ('did you mean to select 2014 when you have already applied a tag from keyword group years').
