Right. At least from the theoretical standpoint once you have a welldefined set
of stuff in whiteboard, that are well-known and widely used. Having them a
keywords is the right thing.

>From a practical point of view, we would need to keep things consistent:
- thus removing all those in exsisting whiteboard and adding them as keywords
- not spamming the world to a halt with that bulk change
- update _all_ doce everywhere: in git repositories, wikis and whatnot
- updating all scripts and queries using these everywhere
- announcing the change far and wide
- keeping an eye out for people doing it "the old way" out of habit for at
  least half a year

Im not saying its not possible, just that it is much more work and hidden costs
that it might initially appear.
