to me it sounds like an appropriate way to create appropriate meta 
content... if you're writing your content to forcibly include 
keywords that you believe will help your rankings, then you aren't 
writing content for your users... or necessarily writing content 
appropriate to your organization, either...

and if you drive your content from your keywords, and if keywords 
themselves aren't really used by SEs, then you're forcing content for 
no good reason except a flawed marketing plan...

i would prefer my meta keywords to actually *reflect* my content 
instead of trying to force my content into the keywords...

cart, horse...
